October 16 to 22 marks Small Business Week in Canada. It's the perfect time to showcase your business and celebrate shop local.
This year's theme is resiliency in recognition of the challenges faced by small business owners who create jobs and drive the local economy.
Small Business Week is a chance for you to connect with and acknowledge your customers, staff, area business leaders, and the local community. And it's also a perfect opportunity to boost your visibility! 


Six Cool Ways to Celebrate Small Business Week

      • Thank your customers – email, text, send a newsletter or post on social media
      • Highlight other amazing small businesses – encourage the community to shop local
      • Collaborate with other businesses – bundle freebies or special offers
      • Share other businesses' social media posts – news, stories, videos, events
      • Organize and host an event – can be interactive, include speakers, and be charitable
      • Conduct demos – offer samples, reveal the view behind the scenes or run a contest
