Local businesses have been hit the hardest this year, so we decided to give one deserving Canadian business a boost with their own $10,000 billboard campaign in our Local Business, Big Voice award.
We were ecstatic to see the number of applicants and after deliberation from our panel of judges, the selected winner is:
Main & Local
This Montreal-based business prides itself on creating products and souvenirs that are truly Canadian. From poutine candles to CBC merchandise, their products capture the heart, soul and even inside jokes of our beautiful country.
With the holidays quickly approaching, the Main and Local team moved fast to get a variety of creatives ready and launched their campaign in Montreal and Toronto only weeks after we told them they had won!
