About the Business Laureates of BC Hall of Fame

The Business Laureates of British Columbia Hall of Fame is an initiative created by JA British Columbia (JABC) to honour British Columbia business leaders whose efforts have shaped our province and country. The Hall of Fame stands as a testament to the positive legacy the Laureates provide to future generations of business leaders.

A new site for the Hall of Fame


To mark the 10th Anniversary of the Business Laureates of BC Hall of Fame, Laureates, business leaders, honoured guests and Junior Achievement (JA) students gathered at the Vancouver Convention Centre West on Thursday, September 17, 2015 for the unveiling of the new BLBC Hall of Fame. The new site is prominently located in the Vancouver Convention Centre West and includes a specially-commissioned sculpture Shape of Inspiration, designed by BC artists Cheryl Hamilton and Michael Vandermeer. We thank project donors for making this site a reality and an inspiration for BC residents, our youth and the world.
