One way to support local is to follow and share your Community Shopping Zones.
A "Community Shopping Zone" is an online marketplace featuring products and promotions
from community based businesses.

Imagine if every product from local retailers could instantly be found on a search engine
exclusively dedicated to stores in your community!

When you shop in-store or online at local businesses
your community benefits in many ways:


More jobs stay in your community.


More money circulates locally to create opportunities for everyone.


Local businesses contribute more to local charities and sports teams.


Brick and mortar businesses pay significant municipal taxes to help pay for teachers, police, firefighters and many other municipal and recreational services that are vital to sustaining our communities.

How do "Community Shopping Zones" work?

Community sustainability is the ultimate goal!

Money spent locally circulates in the community several times. It's called 'The Local Multiplier Effect'. If every Canadian

spends an extra $10 a week locally, it could generate $60 billion a year in local commerce for our communities.
