THE BIG IDEA
Local small businesses make our communities run. They support community events and sponsor sports teams. They also provide nearly 70% of all private sector jobs in Canada.
They have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want to support their recovery in the same way they have supported our communities time and again.
So, we are organizing a one-day event called the Big Spend. On July 25, be part of helping to revive the Canadian economy by making an intentional purchase at a local small business of your choice.
