Congratulations to T’ashii Paddle School for being the 2019 recipient of the BC Indigenous Business Award (IBA) in the 3-10 person enterprise category!
These awards are presented annually by the BC Achievement Foundation. “The BC Indigenous Business Award recognizes enterprises that create and expand opportunities, relationships and communities, all with the goal of a more prosperous future,” said foundation Chair, Anne Giardini. “BC Achievement is particularly excited to highlight some of the many Indigenous businesses across British Columbia that foster innovation – integrating the practices of the past with the economies of the future.”
The IBA program was launched in 2008 to honour and celebrate business excellence and, in its 11th year, boasts close to 200 remarkable businesses within its alumni. A total of 15 Indigenous businesses, entrepreneurs, partnership entities and community-owned enterprises will be recognized for their excellence at a Gala Dinner and ceremony on October 17, 2019 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
