The Award celebrates our Island's best!

CAFE Vancouver Island is thrilled to host our Family Enterprise of the Year Achievement (FEYA) Award at our gala on Thursday, February 28, 2013 at the newly opened family-run Oak Bay Beach Hotel. We invite you to join us in celebrating the Vancouver Island award recipient and finalists.

And there's more! Our local winner will also be eligible to go on and win the national CAFE Canada Family Enterprise Achievement Award in Toronto on June 8th, 2013.

Come on out and support our local families in business...see you there!
