“When 2020 started, one of my biggest goals was to support more Black-owned businesses. But it was surprisingly difficult to find and tell what businesses in the city are truly Black owned. So I created Black Owned Toronto in hopes of discovering more Black-owned businesses.
I wanted a safe space for Black people to showcase and share their work. I created a one-stop shop for all shopping and service needs. I was amazed by how quickly the platform grew and how much support every business I posted received! I will continue my work as a Black business activist and continue working to see Black businesses flourish."
