As the trade war between Canada and the U.S. continues to escalate, shoppers may be wondering what they can do to support Canadian businesses.
Well, this ought to help: three Ontarians have started Made in Canada, a list of user-submitted products that are manufactured on our side of the border.
“We know it can be hard to find Canadian-made products, and even harder to find Canadian-made products from a Canadian-owned company. So we’re making a list,” the team says.
Items are added to the list, which is broken down into multiple categories, via user submission. A submission form asks for the name, manufacturer, and any other relevant information for a specific product.
Busy morning! We've been getting tons of submissions to the site and traffic is growing rapidly. Apologies if we don't get your submissions up as quickly as we'd all like, but we're working on it. https://t.co/VLpi5141zY. #buycanadian #canada

There are 70 products on the list at time of writing, but that number is expected to grow with the website’s popularity. The list includes everything from hockey equipment to condiments like ketchup.
