Vancouver Island consumers wanting to do business with the region’s most trusted businesses now have one more resource at their fingertips.

The 2013 Better Business Bureau–Vancouver Island directory has been distributed through Black Press community newspapers. It is also available through the BBB and online through Black Press’s Island newspapers.

Inside, consumers will find a list of BBB-accredited businesses and editorial features designed to help consumers and businesses build strong relationships.

“The directory not only includes our entire list of reputable accredited businesses, organized by type of business for easy reference, but it also includes helpful information on BBB services, consumer shopping tips, and advice on how to protect yourself and loved ones from being scammed,” says Rosalind Scott, president/CEO of the BBB serving Vancouver Island.

Publishing the directory provides Black Press another way to serve more than 244,000 Island homes and businesses.

“As an accredited business, Black Press understands the value of the work the Better Business Bureau undertakes here on the Island and we appreciate the opportunity to share that with our readers,” says Greater Victoria Group publisher Penny Sakamoto. “Providing consumers easy access to trusted businesses and to the information they need to protect themselves from scams is invaluable.”
