This Promotion has concluded.

This promotion is now over, and the winners have been selected. Keep an eye out for upcoming content featuring the winners Kinder Surprises and His Bead Store. Thank you all for participating!

October marks the beginning of Small Business Month, but there’s always time to celebrate local, small businesses in Saskatchewan. They are very often the lifeblood of our communities. SaskTel is proud to work closely with small businesses from a variety of industries and are excited to announce our Small Business Spotlight promotion!

In preparation for October, we’re asking you to nominate a small business that has had a big impact on you. Whether it’s your own business, a business that offered you remarkable customer service, or a business that is active in enriching our communities, we want to hear from you. Once we have a list of nominations, a panel of judges at SaskTel will evaluate and curate a list of finalists. Then, voting will open to the public to see who they want to win a Spotlight prize.

Don’t delay and vote for a local business that makes a big difference!
