Local Purchasing

We're Buying Local

Our Local Purchasing Initiative prioritizes the purchase of locally made goods. Items purchased will be used for corporate giveaways, donations to local organizations, and as gifts to our members and staff. We encourage all local makers to enter their items to be considered!


    Here are some of the criteria we'll be judging submissions with:

    • Must be $50 or less per item
    • Non-perishable and easily transportable
    • Ablility to be produced in multiple quantities
    • Produced or created locally
    • Preference will be given to Northern Savings' members


    • Entrants must have their principal residence within the boundaries of either the North Coast Regional District or the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District
    • In order to be eligible for selection, the item must be owned by the entrant
    • Items must be produced locally or developed by a local artisan
    • Items that are produced or developed in anyway by a third party must be sourced within Canada


    • Submissions for the 2019 Local Purchasing Initiative are now being accepted
    • Entry forms are available by clicking here and at any Northern Savings branch
    • The entry deadline is 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on September 15, 2019
