Canada United: Supporting local merchants

Retail Council of Canada is proud to be a sponsor and supporter of Canada United, a joint effort with other organizations across Canada to support local merchants & businesses.

About Canada United

For the last several months, Canadians across the country have gone above and beyond to support one another in these uncertain times. By helping local businesses, we can come through this trying time stronger than ever and help Canada turn the corner into economic recovery.

The small and local businesses that make up Canada’s main streets, including retailers, have faced an incredibly difficult environment during the pandemic, with one-third of businesses fully closed at one point and increased costs/reduced cash flow for those that remain. As businesses reopen, RCC is proud to announce Canada United, a national movement to rally Canadians to shop local and support businesses in their communities.
