• 1Grows Local Economy

    It is estimated that for every $100.00 spent at a locally owned, 100% Canadian business, $68.00 remains in the community. In total, taxes paid by small businesses are large companies. As a result, supporting small businesses increases the ability of the government to improve roads, public transportation, healthcare, policing, and other public programs and facilities.

  • 2Better Customer Service

    Locally owned businesses often hire people and those people tend to be more passionate about what they do. Locally owned businesses have a vested interest in knowing how to serve you.

  • 3Competition and Diversity

    A marketplace of several small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long term. Small businesses that select products based on the needs of their local customers and not national sales plans guarantee a much broader range of product choices and prices.

  • 4Enviromental Impact Reduced

    Locally owned businesses make more local purchases and require less transportation. This reduces sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.

  • 5Owners Support Local

    Locally owned businesses contribute more to local charities and fundraisers than their foreign owned, international counterparts. By volunteering or making donations, local business owners invest in the community. Small businesses donate almost 2.5x more per employee to local charitable causes than large, international corporations.

  • 6Creates Local Jobs

    Between 2020 and 2021, small businesses were responsible for 69.0% of the net employment change in the private sector. (Source: ised-isde.canada.ca)
