A Prosperous Community is a Vibrant Community
We help local business communities thrive by providing a local
currency program, which encourages people to shop local.
Look for businesses displaying this sign!
We are launching $800 000 in Community Currency (OC$) into the Waterloo Region, Wellington County and Surrounding Areas. How does this help?
OUR Community Dollar™ complements the federal currency system.
Businesses accept OUR Community Dollar™ as a portion of the sale price of their products and services.
These businesses can then spend their currency with other locally based businesses.
We connect family owned and home-based businesses with prospective customers, developing relationships within a local economy.
Join the Program
Community businesses and consumers can take part in this exciting concept through membership participation.
You’ll receive OC$ that you can use at participating businesses. All of our business members accept a minimum of 10% in OC$ on purchases.
OUR Give and Get Platforms
OUR Give and Get Platform – these are programs that you can participate in to give back to the community in exchange for OC$.
Spend your OC$
