Shop Small Biz – Canada’s Favourite Small Business named

As part of CFIB’s #SmallBizLove contest, which ran from June 10th – 22nd, four small businesses from across the country were nominated as Canada’s most loved businesses! The winners — Popp Chocolates (Winnipeg, MB), Zucchini Blossom (Medicine Hat, AB), Island Hill Farm (Hampshire, PEI), and Merchant of Tennis (Toronto, ON) — will be featured in a national campaign leading-up to Small Business Saturday. 

This year’s Small Business Saturday is being held October 24th, 2015, and will encourage consumers to shop at small business in their own communities. To find your favorite local shops, or to sign up your business, please visit


Where Canadians go to shop small

When Canadians are looking online to shop small and local, there’s really only one place to go. Shop Small Biz is the only made-in-Canada business directory that lets Canadians shop where their purchases make a difference: at local independently-owned small and medium businesses.

But customers can’t find you if you’re not there. So sign up today. It’s absolutely free to use for both consumers and businesses. And signing up your business is easy. Simply register your location to show up in searches. Then add more details to make your listing stand out. Photos, links, special deals can all be added or removed whenever you feel like it.

Consumers looking for deals in their area can search by keyword or browse by type of business. The directory has a mapping function and is mobile-friendly.


Shop Small Biz is presented by CFIB, in partnership with Interac.
