Toronto, November 26, 2021 – Small Business Saturday is this weekend, and Canadians still have the chance to win $2,000 to spend at their favourite small businesses by entering the contest from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). Sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity for Canadians to shop local this holiday season and give back to the businesses that make their communities vibrant.
CFIB’s latest Small Business Recovery Dashboard shows that while 76 per cent of businesses are fully open, less than half (45 per cent) are fully staffed and about one-third (36 per cent) are making normal sales for this time of year.
Small Business Saturday Contest details:
- What: A chance to win one of 10 cash prizes of $2,000, or five $150 eBay gift cards, to show support for small business.

- When: Until November 28, 2021.
- Who: All adults residing in Canada can enter. One entry per person. No purchase required.
