As small businesses reopen under different dimensions and safety measures, we are continuously inspired by the resilience and adaptability of small business owners. Small businesses play a crucial role in strengthening our communities, and our social media campaign aims to highlight our support for local businesses across Canada.

We encourage everyone to share their favourite local business signs using the hashtag #WelcomeBack and tagging @Interac.
