Why should we #ChooseTBayFirst?
When we spend our money with #TBay businesses, we contribute to a network that returns our money to our community in ways that benefit all of us, making Thunder Bay a better place to live.
When we spend our money out of the community, it’s gone for good.
What is #ChooseTBayFirst?
#ChooseTBayFirst is a community awareness campaign aimed at educating consumers about the ways money spent locally returns to us through a stronger, healthier community.
Our stories focus on businesses and people who:
- support local jobs
- contribute to our municipal tax base
- help our charities, sports and cultural organizations
- choose #TBay businesses themselves
How You Can Participate
We plan to publish a new video every Monday morning. These will be upbeat, uplifting stories that make people feel proud to live, work and shop in TBay.
