Small Business Saturday 2017

Celebrate Canada’s Small Business Saturday: October 21, 2017


Shop small and have a big impact!

Brought to you by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business in partnership with Interac, Small Business Saturday is an opportunity to celebrate small businesses and the contributions they make to our neighbourhoods. The more we shop at local, independent businesses, the more likely that money will stay in the community and be used to create jobs.

On Saturday, October 21st, we invite you to visit your favourite neighbourhood spot – the local business that helps you feel at home in your community. It’s also the perfect opportunity to discover the unexpected by learning more about the variety of independent businesses in your area.

Whatever way you plan to celebrate, we ask you help us spread the word about why it is so important to celebrate local business and the communities that they serve by using the hashtags #SmallBizSaturday and #FindYourSpot.


Are you a business looking to get involved?
