Westoba Celebrates Small Business Week 2020

Date: October 16, 2020

Westoba is celebrating Small Business Week which runs October 18 to October 24, 2020.

In times of economic crisis, we believe it’s more important than ever to acknowledge and support the great local businesses in our areas. Did you know small-to-medium-sized businesses are the foundation of the Canadian economy, accounting for 99.7% of all businesses?

How are we celebrating Small Business Week?

Starting this Monday, you will see us help raise awareness of small business through our ATMs and in-branch television programming, in the Brandon Sun and community news; here on Westoba.com and our social channels, we will be providing resources for small businesses.


We have three $100.00 gift cards to giveaway with the goal of raising engagement for 3 select business members social channels: Glenboro Co-op, Kelleher Tech, and South Central Physiotherapy. Throughout the week, we will launch contests on our Facebook page tagging these businesses. Winners for each business contest will be chosen the following Monday, October 26!

Be sure to visit our Facebook page all week to win!


Visit Westoba’s social channels as we ask followers, members, and staff to tag (@) some of their favourite local businesses. With this ‘Where We Shop’ series we aim to bring awareness to some of our hardworking stores, shops, creators, and service owners and providers.

Get your recommendations ready!


All week we will be posting some great blogs for small business, like “5 Ways Westoba Credit Union Can Help Support Your Small Business in 2021”, and “The Importance of Keeping Your Personal and Business Finances Separate”. Stay tuned for new articles all week.
