Britespan Wins 2016 Small Business of the Year Award

TORONTO, February 25, 2016 - To celebrate some of Canada's most accomplished small business owners, the AIR MILES® Reward Program is hosting the third annual Small Business Achievement Awards, presented by Bank of Montreal, on March 7, 2016.

From start-ups to established enterprises, this year's honourees shine a spotlight on Canada's entrepreneurial spirit and outstanding talent across five key categories: Small Business of the Year, Start-Up of the Year, Innovation of the Year, Social Responsibility, and Young Entrepreneur of the Year. 

Small businesses represent 99.8 per cent of all companies in Canada and are the economic engines that power Canada's job creation and economic growth1. The AIR MILES Small Business Achievement Awards is proud to recognize small business owners and the significant contributions they continue to make to this country and its economy.

"This year's winners are risk takers, innovators, and community builders who truly embody what AIR MILES for Business is all about. We look forward to honouring them and wishing each of them all the best in their future endeavours," adds MacQueen.

Britespan is excited to announce that they are the recipients of the 2016 Small Business of the Year Award.
