Shop Canada For The Holidays!

There are so many reasons to shop local during the holiday season, and a billion beautiful bonus reasons to shop Canadian: More money returns to the local economy! You help create jobs! It’s better for the environment! Justin Trudeau will thank you! Everything tastes better with Maple Syrup! Even better than all of that is the sheer pleasure in discovering the crazy amazing things being made by hand by courageous local makers in our neighbourhoods. Canadian cities are bumping with glorious homemade goodness, so we’re here to highlight some of the best shops for local gifts across the land. If you’re in one of these towns, head on over and say hello! And in case you’re unlucky enough to be elsewhere, we’ve highlighted the ones that will ship the goodness to you. Get your Canada on this winter and enjoy, eh? Yay!
