Do you have something fantastic that you’d like to share with shoppers who are passionate about supporting independent business? If there’s a festival in your area, a huge sale or event happening at your shop, or you simply have some fabulous news, tips or advice to offer, please email us your blog entry at

Here’s the fine print:

  • Please keep your article to about 500 words or less, plus a short business or personal bio.
  • Images and video are strongly encouraged.
  • Please include a link to your listing.
  • Please ensure your listing is up-to-date, accurate and complete.
  • You must represent an independently owned and operated Canadian business OR a Canadian consumer. In other words, we do not accept entries from outside of Canada or from large corporations.

We do have an awesome team of writers and editors who will be happy to give your article the once-over, and we will notify you in advance of the date your article will publish.

Thanks for participating!
