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.
