Why buy local ?
Because we live here.
Small, Independent, Businesses Makes Ottawa
Resilient & Sustainable
Keep your money where your heart lives!
Support an economy of friends, neighbours and entrepreneurs who know you. Building connections in a community that will thrive by thinking and acting local first.
Local VS Non Local
More than ¾ of businesses in Ottawa are small businesses of 1- 20 employees:
“Small-scale, locally owned businesses create communities that are more prosperous, connected, and generally better-off.”
A local small business needs to do well by doing good to provide a service or product you need or it’s not in business for long.
A non local multi national needs to do the same and provide dividends to shareholders, often a non local at whatever costs.
