You can make a difference!


Think Local First is the only registered non-profit society of locally owned, independent business that seek to promote the social and economic benefits of shopping local in the Greater Victoria Area.

We are directed by a group of enthusiastic volunteers who are all local business owners in Victoria.

Now more than ever, businesses need to market the fact that they are locally-owned to give them an edge over the competition.

We aim to have every locally-owned business in Victoria be a member. The more members we have, the stronger our message is, and the greater the impact on public awareness — the ultimate mandate of Think Local First is to educate and increase public awareness of local businesses.
