Join the #GoSmallCanada challenge 

What's the #GoSmallCanada challenge? 

This summer, we’re challenging Canadians to come together and support small businesses across the Country. Together, let’s show how BIG small businesses can become when they have a little help. ​

Small businesses have been the backbone of our communities forever. Isn’t it time to share the love, and become the cheerleaders and advocates they need right now. ​

When we band together and choose to buy from our favourite small businesses, even the smallest purchases add up. Those purchases become even more powerful when we share those #hiddengems for other consumers to discover.
