Cypress Hills Eco-Adventures Ltd. has earned another accolade after being selected as the Saskatchewan winner in the 2013 Small Biz Champions Contest.
Cypress Hills Eco-Adventures was one of 10 winners of the national contest which attracted over 700 entries. Shop Small Biz announced the winner on Canada's Small Business Day (Oct. 25).
Entrants to the contest were asked to submit stories and photos that show why they love being entrepreneurs. Winners were selected for how well their entries demonstrated their entrepreneurial spirit and community involvement.
“Entrepreneurs represent the very best of what it means to be Canadian,” said CFIB president Dan Kelly. “They are resourceful, hard-working, and they care about their communities. Today, on Canada’s Small Business Day, we celebrate ten Small Biz Champions who embody that spirit, and we ask Canadians to celebrate their own local small businesses by shopping small and visiting shopsmallbiz.ca.”
The contest was presented by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and supported by Interact Association.
CFIB and Interac have launched the new shopsmallbiz.ca online directory – a made-in-Canada business directory that allows small business owners to promote themselves to Canadian consumers and each other.
