What does buying local mean?

In essence, buying local means buying products that are made and grown in Quebec, shopping in independent businesses in one’s region or favouring Quebec companies over large multinationals.

Meaning of local buying

Quebecers who buy local are unequivocal about the benefits of this kind of consuming. Here are a few compelling reasons why they do it that might inspire you to buy local too:

  • They derive pleasure from it.
  • They reap health benefits: certain fruits and vegetables can lose some of their vitamins during transportation or storage.
  • They can trace the origin of products.
  • They contribute to the protection of the environment by reducing transportation impacts.
  • They help support their local economy as buying local creates jobs.
  • They contribute to strengthening the social fabric of many rural areas.
  • They help ensure decent working conditions and fair wages for employees.
