Canadian Jewelry Brands to Support During Covid-19

I started this list as a way to further strengthen the small business community in Canada amidst these trying times. As a new jewelry designer, I had plenty of ethical concerns about launching my brand in a climate in which many, many Canadians (including my family) have felt major impacts.

My decision to launch came when I joined an online gathering of women entrepreneurs coming together to support each other. This inspiring group urged me to launch as planned, offering kind words and acts of support. These heartfelt, genuine words and actions have made me realize that the spirit of camaraderie between small business owners is still very much alive and kicking. It inspired me not only to launch, but to create a list of Canadian jewelry designers to support during this trying time. I urge anyone reading this to expand the list by filling out the form below. 

"buo" means "whole" in Filipino, my native tongue. This list represents a coming together, a "whole-ness", of Canadian entrepreneurs and creatives building a community that will not be overcome by this setback. 

I want to say thank you to my fellow entrepreneurs who are struggling to keep their businesses running but are still offering support to others. Another big thank you goes to anyone out there using this list to support local businesses. Your support means everything to us right now, and I'm confident we'll come out of this strong and inspired.
