Localism, Community and Goodwill

POSTED BY Modern Earth


Wholly Canadian - Modern Earth Web Design - Search Engine Optimization Winnipeg ManitobaA breath of fresh air for those with a heart for local or fair-trade living, and inspiration for those intrigued

Given the chance, most consumers will happily support local, well-made products over mass-marketed, imported goods, but it is often so difficult to know what products are available. Smaller, local companies often don’t have the advertising revenue or production base to compete with popular goods that are easily available in your local grocery or department store and reviews on locally produced goods can be difficult for consumers to find. 

This is where Wholly Canadian comes in.

Wholly Canadian is a social enterprise that exists to encourage localism, community, and goodwill within Canada and is the online connecting point for Canadian businesses to proudly showcase their made-in-Canada products via an online directory featuring categories of wholly Canadian products. This provides an organic intersection for Canadian consumers and producers.

The directory features numerous businesses and is always growing and the hot picks section is an excellent resource for all things Canadian from local dairy products to Canadian made children’s equipment. 

Through online tools including social media, giveaway contests, top ten picks of the month, incredibly informative blogs, and joining the Wholly Canadian community, this website is a true plethora of information for anyone who wants to explore local, sustainable living at its best.

If you are a Canadian-owned enterprise or international enterprise dedicated to fair-trade products and you manufacture and/or retail a substantial amount of Canadian-made or fair-trade products, collaborating with Wholly Canadian is a smart way to invest your resources--as it is a grassroots social enterprise that champions local companies like yours. It's connecting with potential customers who are already interested in you! 

Visit Wholly Canadian and enjoy the resources available for local, sustainable living

Caring and Sharing

Harrow United ChurchIn 1916  Mr. James Hooper took a sunday afternoon stroll across south fort rouge and found there were a large number of children in the area without a Sunday School to attend.  A meeting was called between members of three churches in the area,  Crescent Congregational, Fort Rouge Methodist and Augustine Presbyterian.  As a result of this meeting a nearby abandoned store on what is now Arbuthnot street near the corner of Scotland avenue became Sunshine Hall.

Over the years the congregation grew and a need was evident for a larger location.  At a meeting of the congregation on April 27, 1948, a decision was made to purchase the current Mulvey and Harrow property as a new site for the church.  After construction was completed on the new church, the old building was moved to the same site and is now used as the Christian Education Building.

Fast forward to the present day, and Harrow United Church is still a place where children and youth go to grow and play.  Constantly looking for ways to help make a difference in the community, the growing congregation holds several outreach events throughout the year and posts regular happenings on their website.  The large hall and kitchen are available for rental for major life events.  Caring for the members of the congregation, and sharing in their journey, has made Harrow United Church a welcome place for the people and families who call the Crescentwood neighborhood home.
