British Columbia is a small business haven. According to the BC Government's Small Business Profile, 98 percent of all BC businesses are considered small businesses, and nearly 20 percent of BC's workforce is self-employed. We also know that many small businesses don't have the insurance coverage they need, and it's estimated that 25 percent of BC businesses are underinsured or have no insurance at all.
Building and running a small business takes a lot of heart and hard work. Entrepreneurs have taken chances to establish and grow their company, and we want to help them protect what they've built. To support BC businesses with the insurance coverage they need, we're excited to announce our new BCAA Small Business Insurance. It will be launching this year, and to help business owners start planning, we want to give some of the early details – along with an opportunity to sign up for an exclusive discount to help save on the policy.
BCAA Small Business Insurance will be available for over 200 professions in a wide variety of sectors, focusing on landlords, business services, retail, construction and many more.
