Indigenous Canadian Brand Guide

I am passionate about supporting small, Canadian owned businesses.  Over this past year, I’ve been making an effort to shop more BIPOC owned, small, Canadian businesses.  There are some incredible small Indigenous owned brands that I have shopped with and so many more I keep discovering.  If you are looking to shop Indigenous shops, but aren’t familiar with many, I have created a list as a starting point.  The list includes apparel brands, beauty and wellness items, home goods, jewelry, art and literature, gift shops, food & wine, and even (one of my favourite things), coffee!  Happy Shopping!
