Ontario’s small businesses are essential to our economy, our communities and our way of life.

They serve our communities and provide meaningful opportunities for hardworking families to get ahead.

Ontario has an abundance of local shops and businesses with creative and unique gift ideas. Let’s support those who work hard to serve our communities.

We urge Ontarians to gift local this holiday season — whether in-store or online — to help bring vitality back to our main streets by supporting local merchants and helping them regain lost revenues due to COVID-19.

Make sure to also support local restaurants by treating your family to dinner or giving restaurant gift cards to friends and neighbours.

Let’s give the gift of shopping local this season and make wishes come true not only for our family and friends but also to small businesses across Ontario for a happy holiday and success into the New Year.
