eQuo Launches #GoSmallCanada Campaign

eQuo, a community platform that provides funding and capital solutions for entrepreneurs, is challenging Canadians to come together and support small businesses (fewer than 100 employees) online or in-store. eQuo’s #GoSmallCanada campaign is being kicked off by former Waterloo, ON mayor, Brenda Halloran, who is issuing her own challenge to fellow mayors, past, present, and incumbent, to Go Small. As well, consumers across the country are encouraged to share their small business purchases with photos or videos on social media and tag their favourite hidden gem using the hashtags #GoSmallCanada and their #city or #town. Shyra and Rye Barberstock, co-founders of Okwaho Equal Source, an Indigenous-owned social purpose enterprise in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, are joining the #GoSmallCanada campaign as co-leaders to support Indigenous small businesses and communities.
