About

The goal of this website is to showcase all the great Canadian businesses and products made in our own backyard.

Here are some of the top reasons to shop locally:

  • Supports the Canadian economy. When we buy local, we both directly and indirectly support local jobs through the economic multiplier effect.
  • Supports ethical production of goods. Canada has stringent health and safety laws. By buying products made in Canada you can rest assured that workers are treated fairly.
  • Supports the environment. Buying local means a smaller carbon foot print due to less transporting. Canada also has stringent environmental protection laws that ensure that the manufacturing process is safe and non-hazardous to the environment. Many developing countries have lax environmental protection laws.
