Did you know that small and medium-sized businesses contribute to over half of Canada’s gross domestic product?
October 16-22, 2022 is Small Business Week in Canada. What is Small Business Week? It is an annual event put on by the BDC (Business Development Bank of Canada) to celebrate entrepreneurship across the country.
There are many ways you can show them your support by:
– Shop Local! Get out and about! To show support other than shopping in physical stores. Try purchasing items online for delivery and be a digital patron to show your small business appreciation.
– Tell a friend about a local small business you believe in there is power in a referral, and a small business will thank you for it. Spread the word or better yet, bring your friend along to a local business and show them what all the hype is about.
– Engage small businesses online. Small Business Week is the perfect time to promote local shops on your socials. No matter where you post content online, you can give meaningful support to a small business near you. You can also support your favourite SMB’s by writing a positive online review on Google or Yelp.
During BDC Small Business Week – Oct. 16-22, let’s celebrate the exceptional talent, drive and passion of entrepreneurs! See all the events: https://www.bdc.ca/en/small-business-week
