Join Ethno BC for this gala evening to recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of the 2014 New Canadian Entrepreneurs in BC. This event sells out quickly and is attended by past award recipients, business people, government officials, media representatives and community leaders. Last year more than 300 guests attended the awards banquet and enjoyed the evening festivities. We expect an equally supportive crowd for this year’s gala.
