When searching for gifts, items on your shopping list, or trending wish-list items, Google search results can be a little overwhelming. It can be a big task to try and narrow it down to the real local Canadian businesses that sell the products you're actually looking for. That's why the Shop Local CANADA Canadian business directory is so handy (if we do say so ourselves ). It's curated to showcase a wide variety of amazing local businesses from all across Canada in one place. Our main mission is to make it easy to discover and support local Canadian businesses.
Have you had a chance to search through the hundreds of unique local businesses in the Shop Local CANADA Canadian business directory yet? You might just discover a new shop in your city that you didn't know existed!
Easily Search Through 470+ Local Canadian Shops
Pure vegan soaps? Got it. Stainless steel lunch boxes? Yep! Modern home decor? You betcha! When it comes to the best local Canadian shops, our directory has it all. Working together with over 470 different local businesses (with more being added daily), the Shop Local CANADA Canadian business directory has everything you're looking for (and some things you didn’t know you needed!). No longer do you have to wait for the next local market to pop up in your city. Instead you can discover local Canadian businesses and the owners behind these businesses year-round by simply browsing through the site.
Search By Category
We knew that in order to make sure our Canadian business directory was as convenient, useful and user-friendly as possible, we needed to design it with specific categories to make finding what you need quick and easy. We achieved this by adding multiple product categories to help narrow down your search. Whether you're looking for candles or skin and hair care products, the Shop Local CANADA directory has everything sorted into convenient categories. A few examples of these include:
Search By Location
Do you only want to see the businesses that are near you? No problem! Our Canadian business directory gives you the option to show only the businesses in your province (select yours from the list in the 'Province' box)! You can go even further by typing in your address in the 'Location' box or clicking on the locator icon (right side of the box). You may just find that local businesses are only a block away from you! Narrow your search even further by setting the proximity from your location (10/25/50/100/250 km). Find a product you love but the shop is in another province or city? No problem! Most of the businesses listed in our Canadian business directory will ship their products. Simply select 'Online' from the 'Online or In-store' box to discover all the local Canadian businesses that will ship directly to you.
Find Local Sales
Once you've had a chance to peruse the site and find your new favourite shops, you will want to check out the Sales section (click 'Sales' on the top menu bar). Here you'll find a list of all the sale discounts currently being offered by Canadian businesses. If you're like us, you love scoring a good deal! The Sales section is an easy way to see all the sales from all different shops in one place. Check back often to find the best products at the best prices!

Support Local Businesses
When you spend the time to find local businesses and purchase their goods and services, you are not only supporting them but also your local economy. It's been proven that when you buy local goods you save the planet of unnecessary fossil fuel usage, know where the products are coming from, and most importantly, support your fellow Canadians and help build a stronger community!
