October is Small Business Month!

Did you know…

  • 54% of British Columbians work for small, locally-owned businesses?

  • Small, locally-owned businesses recirculate up to 60% of revenue into the local economy, compared to 14% for multinationals?

  • B.C.’s small business sector generates approximately 34 per cent of the provincial GDP?

When you support small, local businesses, you support your community!

Meet the People Behind Downtown’s Small Businesses

This past summer, our marketing co-op student, Sierra, interviewed a whole bunch of amazing downtown small business owners on video. She spent many, many hours editing each interview into a short reel for Instagram. Follow @downtownvictoriabc to meet a new small business owner every day throughout October!
Watch the videos below for a sneak peak of some of the business owners interviewed for this project. These videos were created by Surf & Stone Studio!
