48 Canadian Black-Owned Businesses to Support Today and Always

With everything that’s been happening in the last week (and for the last centuries, if we talk about systemic racism), many of us have been wondering how we can help beyond feeling upset. How we can proactively be anti-racist and support the cause. “Once I’ve shared every imaginable #BlackLivesMatter Instagram story, what can I do next?”

First, I suggest you take a look at FASHION, Refinery 29, and The Good Trade (here and here) all of which have published expansive lists of books to read, movies to watch, podcasts to listen, petitions to sign, causes to donate to, and activists to follow.

Once that’s done, I encourage you to go through this directory of 48 Canadian black-owned fashion, beauty, and lifestyle businesses. Because one true and actionable way to support black communities and POC is to invest our money in a diversified economy. Today, tomorrow, and always.
