#SupportLocalCanada INITIATIVE Overview:
GOAL: Advance the not-for-profit #SupportLocalCanada movement to help businesses in our
community (hit hard by the Corona Virus). Let's give them a boost in morale, gratitude and
support - as well as offer a spotlight on Canadian Brands.
And now with your help- we can AMPLIFY this collective positive voice Coast to Coast to Coast.
From a social cause perspective, not only does local business enrich the heart and soul of every
city, but it contributes directly to the health of a community- providing jobs, economic
prosperity, local supply chains, fair trade environments, and often a direct source of funding
to many local charities. Despite the devastation Covid19 has inflicted, it has also left a
positive opportunity for us all to take the time to reflect on what's important to us and the
greater community. Our hope is to build a #SupportLocal message and amplify it across Canada, to
make a positive change during Covid19 and beyond.
“Our start-up is in the business of retail marketing, our passion is helping brands grow. Our
platform and app was currently under development when Covid19 hit the world- like many of us, we
were blindsided, much needed funding was now up in the air. Although our tool could have been
helpful for local business during this pandemic, we just didn’t have access to resources to
complete development in a few short weeks. However, I wanted to do something - as now more than
ever local businesses everywhere need our help and fast. In this regard, we are allocating our
available resources such as our website to highlight local retail and restaurants for free and
have started a #SupportLocalCanadaChallenge, alongside “POPtv”. We are looking for you help to
amplify the movement and promote Canadian Business and Brands to Canadians from coast to coast
