Earth's Own

“As Canada’s #1 non-dairy beverage company, we believe that it’s important to showcase that our products are made right here in Canada. And through Buy Canadian First, we can achieve this. From inclusion on their robust website, and through various opportunities they have offered; such as TV segments, a sampling program at TIFF and use of their logo on our own Marketing collateral, it has been a great partnership to date. Moreover, the team at Buy Canadian First are a pleasure to work with.”

Life Science Nutritionals

“Being a proud Canadian company that makes & manufactures gummy vitamins for children & adults in Canada, we were eager to sign up with Buy Canadian First. However, our small staff and busy schedules got in the way of updating our profile on their website for months. Still, their team included us in the many opportunities Buy Canadian First gives to its clients, and we grabbed at those opportunities- being included in the Toronto Film Fest and on televised screens in downtown Toronto to name a few. A simple note from me that I hadn’t had time to update our profile for our 11 products, and within 2 days their team had done an amazing job of it for me! They also provided the staff that created two amazing 30 second commercials for us in record time and superior quality. We are so grateful to be part of the Buy Canadian First family Truly a great team that believes in Canadian Business and will do all they can to help promote it.”

“At long last, it is is fantastic to see a movement in this country towards “Buying Canadian First”!!!. For years I have always tried to buy Canadian Made products, and this has often proven to be a difficult task. One has to really shop around to accomplish this, and be particular in checking out the labels on a product to ensure it is Canadian made. Rest assured I will pass the word around about Buying Canadian First amongst my collegues in the Canadian Forces.”

David,
Ottawa, Ontario

“Thank you for all you do in order to help us Canadians to support Canadian products!”

Charlene,
Winnipeg, Manitoba

“I have your site on my favorites list ... because I strongly support Canadian companies, I have for years. At the beginning some people thougt I was crazy insisting on Canadian made products. Not so much now as it is very difficult to find genuine Canadian made anything anymore. Thanks to seeing you on A channel, I look up things often and have purchased items on-line”

Susan,
Ottawa, Ontario

“I think you site is great ... and just stumbled upon it while doing some online research.”

Michael,
Ottawa, Ontario

“I have long thought that the Canadian government should have a web site which lists everything that is made here. If you are about to purchase something (anything from a toaster to a shovel to a car), you should be able to type in the item in which you are interested and you should be able to get a list of sources of the item (store or supplier). Thanks!”

Tom,
Grimsby, Ontario

“I think this website is a great idea!”

Martine,
