Squamish Champions - Module #2 - Support Local

Squamish has a diverse and talented business community, employing locals and supporting other small businesses. 
Bringing our dollars into our communities creates more jobs and more opportunities to everyone around us. Let’s show our love and support for our incredible community by continuing to buy, shop, eat, and play local!

Buy Local - #ShopSquamish

The pandemic has been especially challenging for small businesses, but we’ve seen the community pull together to support and champion one another – and awareness on the impact of shopping locally is on the rise too!

While the need to help the small business community is most immediately obvious, the benefits of shopping small extend beyond times of crisis.

Please share and help us spread the support local message.

Why Local?

Research shows that for every $100 spent with a BC local business, $63 is re-circulated back into our BC economy (vs $14 for multi nations).

Local businesses:

    • circulate money back into our community
    • have owners who live and provide jobs in your community
    • provide more support for local events, sports teams and charities
    • are more likely to buy local services and stock
