Welcome to the 2022 Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards! It is time to show the love for all the local businesses that have been nominated for a 2022 Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Award.
This year we have done things a little differently—we opened up the nomination process for the Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards (SCPCAs) to our local community. Nominations were open for a 5-week period which ran from April 7–May 11, 2022 on our partner the Sunshine Coast Business Recovery Centre’s website. During this time the local community was invited to either nominate their own business or all their favourite local businesses in 125 predetermined categories. You can find more details about the nomination process at www.scbrc.ca/ coastyourvote.
