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.
