When you choose to buy from a local business you are helping to support our community, create jobs and enhance prosperity by circulating dollars between businesses and residents. Join us in celebrating local businesses.

By Shifting 1% of your spending to local businesses and products you can contribute to creating 3,100 jobs and $94 million in wages to the BC economy.

Look for the #BCbuylocal dots to identify businesses and products that help make these impacts a reality.

WHY LOCAL?

Research shows that for every $100 spent with a BC local business, $46 is re-circulated back into our BC economy (vs $18 for multi nations). This is because locally owned businesses are more likely to buy local services, stock local products and provide more support for local events, teams and charities.
