“Thousands of hard-working small business owners and savvy consumers have signed up for Canada’s Small Business Saturday, but this important initiative has also generated strong support on Parliament Hill, as well as in city halls and provincial legislatures all across our great country. Mayors, Premiers, and Prime Minister, Stephen Harper say that if we all shop small, it can make a big difference.”
Small businesses are crucial to Canada’s economic success. Small business entrepreneurs are powering our economy through innovation, job creation and new, exciting ideas. Canada would not be the same without our small business owners. Our economic success depends on them. Shopping at a small business is a special experience – you cannot get it at a big-box store. Many products are unique and impossible to find anywhere else. Small business owners are reputable and know their products intimately. Small businesses matter to our economy, to our communities, and to our friends and neighbours.
Today, October 20th is Canada’s Small Business Saturday. Join with thousands of Canadians who are committing to shop small and keeping our communities vibrant and strong!
