Welcoming Back: #Loyal2LocalChallenge

< Back to all articles

In 2021, Atlantic Canadians inspired us with their dedication to their communities and local businesses. The second year of the #Loyal2LocalChallenge, a concept ideated by Libro Credit Union in London, Ontario the year prior, saw the people of Atlantic Canada support their local businesses and help to build up their community together.

Once again, we are excited to announce this year’s #Loyal2LocalChallenge, which will run from July 15 to August 15, 2022.

To get things started, each credit union employee across Atlantic Canada will receive $25 to spend at a favourite local shop in support of the businesses that keep our communities strong. Employees are being asked to post about their experience on social media with the name of the business, tag Atlantic Credit Unions (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), and share using the hashtag #Loyal2LocalChallenge.

We are also asking you to join us in showing love and support for local businesses by participating in the #Loyal2LocalChallenge. Showing support does not always come in the form of purchasing goods and services and spending money. Here is a list of other ways you can participate in the #Loyal2LocalChallenge without breaking the bank:

  • Share about your go-to community café on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or TikTok and make sure to tag them!
  • Write a heartfelt review about how amazing your service or how tasty your treat was. Local businesses love a five-star review.
  • Tell your friends about the awesome local shop you visited and encourage them to stop by soon.

There are so many ways to support your local businesses and help build up the Atlantic communities. Let’s make a meaningful difference for the businesses that make our communities great places to live, work, and play and let’s do it together. Check out some of our member stories to find some great local business to support, including: Fellow Earthlings, ShipBuilders Cider, District Hair, and 7th House Tattoo.
