Social Enterprise Marketplace

November 18, 2020

Welcome to our Social Enterprise Market Place

If you are looking for a gift or service with a purpose, we’ve created a marketplace so that you can #shopsocialenterprise all year round. We have worked with these businesses and some are Indigenous owned. By shopping with them, not only are you supporting a small business, but you are helping to achieve social and environmental impact.
