You can make a difference.

Due to COVID-19, 90% of Canadians say they see small businesses in their community suffering, and nearly half know a business that has permanently closed. You might know one yourself.

During these difficult times, business owners are worried customers won’t come back. We aren’t asking you to spend a ton of money. There are a lot of ways you can support local businesses, like recommending a local favourite, choosing to shop local first and sharing our challenge with your family and friends to support #SmallBusinessEveryDay.
