Our SHOP LOCAL campaign began with great success. By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain Gananoque’s unique and distinctive flavor. Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes. Local Decision Making Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions. Your dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development. Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do. Entrepreneurship Entrepreneurship fuels the Canadian economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.
