If there has been one “positive” of this whole global pandemic (not that any of this is positive but) – it’s that it’s really encouraged people to support and shop local businesses within their own communities. I am noticing more and more that people are preferring to shop local when they can, and have been more than willing to pay a little bit more for better customer service, a more personal shopping experience, and putting that money back within their own community (instead of giving it to Jeff Bezos who let’s be honest – really doesn’t need it). There is definitely a time and place for Amazon. It has made shopping a lot more accessible for people and I can recognize that.

I challenge you to purchase even just 1 or 2 items from a Canadian small business this Christmas. I’ve compiled a large list of Canadian small businesses all over the country in a wide variety of categories to help make this challenge just a little bit easier for you! Let me know if you end up shopping any of these small businesses this holiday season.

Disclaimer: I will put an asterisk * indicating whether or not I have personally purchased from this small business or not. A lot of these businesses came recommended from my followers or businesses I have met through my own small business!

TIP for navigating this guide: search by location, or item if you are looking for something specific!
