May is Small Business Month in Vancouver!

Each year, the Small Business Administration (SBA) designates the first week in May as National Small Business Week. The City of Vancouver and its partners take this a step further by declaring May to be Small Business Month, with an official proclamation by Vancouver City Council. Join us in celebrating the small businesses in our community by coming to one of the more than 20 events being held around the city in the month of May!

May is Small Business Month in Vancouver! Small businesses are core to Vancouver's economy, making up 95 percent of all businesses in the city.

Vancouver is a great place to start and grow a business.

Join forces with startups, brewpubs and galleries in Vancouver's emerging downtown. Or enjoy a more suburban community surrounding the 192nd tech corridor. Either way, you'll benefit from fantastic natural amenities, miles of bike lanes and riverfront trails, proximity to an international airport and two industrial ports, and the regions most business friendly tax structure.
