TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - This week, Business News Network features 
innovative Canadian small businesses, and addresses the challenges they face 
to be a success. With 48% of Canadians employed by companies with 100 or fewer 
employees, small businesses mean big business to the Canadian economy. BNN and 
co-sponsor Bell salute these 1.1 million Canadian businesses with a week of 
features during SMALL BUSINESS WEEK, beginning today and airing throughout the 
week, October 15-19 at 4:40 p.m. ET on BNN. 
BNN's SMALL BUSINESS WEEK captures the key steps of the entrepreneurial 
journey, telling the stories of both seasoned and budding companies. Viewers 
will learn about these smaller operations, will be able to ask questions, and 
learn from one another's mistakes in the small business marketplace. 
"Not only do small Canadian businesses create jobs for Canadians, but they 
also capture the entrepreneurial spirit that has helped build this country," 
said Jack Fleischmann, General Manager, BNN. "The 1.1 million small businesses 
in Canada are a fundamental part of the Canadian economy." 
Beginning on SMALL BUSINESS WEEK, small businesses can get a boost with Bell's 
Salute to Small Business Contest - a chance for businesses to win $25,000 in 
services to help their business grow. Small business owners, employees and 
customers can visit for more details on this contest, 
and to enter or nominate a business. 
"Bell supports small businesses in Canada not just during SMALL BUSINESS WEEK, 
but every week of the year," said Heather Tulk, Senior Vice President Bell 
Business Markets. "Bell is committed to helping small businesses grow and our 
Salute to Small Business Contest is just one way that we hope to be able to 
achieve that objective."
