Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards

Sunshine Coast People's Choice Awards 2022

Update:  Photos from the 2022 Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards Gala can be found at the bottom of this post. 

On behalf of the Sunshine Coast Business Recovery Centre(SCBRC) and the Gibsons, Pender Harbour and Sechelt & District Chambers of Commerce, I would like to congratulate all of the winners, finalists and nominated businesses of the 2nd Annual Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards.

I would also like to extend a huge thank-you to the Sunshine Coast community for the incredible support that was shown this year. The response from business owners and residents alike has once again exceeded our expectations—working together we have created a new way to celebrate the local business community that plays a vital role in making the Sunshine Coast such a special place.

The 2022 People’s Choice Awards succeeded in putting the spotlight on the eclectic diversity of local businesses we have here on the coast, helped to celebrate and promote positive stories of community building and economic brilliance, and was overall a fun and inclusive online event, bringing our community together…and now, the people have spoken!

On the following pages you will find all of this year’s local voted community favourites, and what a list it is! But, I also want to acknowledge the ongoing contributions of each and every one of our amazing local businesses. Every local business, small or large, adds something unique, different, and one-of-a kind, and only together can they create the exciting, livable coastal community we are proud to call home.

Let’s continue to celebrate and support our vibrant local business community here on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, and congratulations again to all this year’s favourites!

– Yarrow Drtina, Small Business Programs Manager, Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization(SCREDO)
