The BC Export Awards annually seeks out BC's Top 25 Exporters and honours them for their excellence and achievements in 12 categories, including ten directed at firms and two at individuals. The Awards are presented by the Government of British Columbia and the BC Division of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters with support from annual sponsors. It is the oldest awards ceremony of its kind in Canada.

The objectives of the BC Export Awards are to:

  • Increase awareness amongst British Columbians of the important role that exporting makes to the provincial economy
  • Identify and reward British Columbia's most successful and innovative exporters
  • Promote BC's top 25 exporters as corporate role models in order to stimulate greater involvement in exporting amongst the province's business community
  • Further develop community awareness of the importance of exporting to the province's economic future

Past winners of the BC Export Awards provide an education into the outstanding talent and expertise that exists within companies from across British Columbia. Many of the BC winners have gone on to international recognition.
