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. 

We urge Ontarians to shop local this weekend and spread some love — whether in-store, or online — to support local merchants. 

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. 

  • Support your favourite small businesses and find high-quality products and one-of-a-kind gifts made by local artisans. 
  • Help keep our local businesses in business — show support for your favourite restaurant by treating your family to dinner or giving restaurant gift cards to friends and neighbours. 
  • This weekend show some love for your favourite local restaurant by treating yourself to takeout, delivery or dine in. 
  • Give the gift of shopping locally and show friends and loved ones you care. #ValentinesDay is around the corner! Support Ontario businesses and find one-of-a-kind gifts made by local artisans.
