It’s never been a better time to support our communities by purchasing locally grown, manufactured, and produced goods. Thanks to the new Ontario Made logo, unveiled this week by the provincial government, it is now easier than ever to identify products made within Ontario. To support local, simply look for the Ontario Made logo when you are shopping.
Having the ability to recognize Ontario products should make it easier for consumers to choose local and keep their dollars in the province. That is the motivation behind Premier Doug Ford’s announcement of the new logo, as the provincial economy continues to open and recover from COVID-19. With more than 14.5 million consumers in Ontario, the opportunity to consciously choose provincially grown, made, and manufactured products could give our province a new economic boost.
