Proudly Canadian is a program London Drugs launched in 2018 to highlight our unique selection of products that have Canadian roots.
While #ProudlyCanadian is always near and dear to London Drugs and our customers, with many businesses across our country struggling to survive during COVID-19, we felt it important to share the successes of the many great Canadian companies within our communities. Companies with amazing stories about their beginnings through to their achievements. Stories that most importantly are about the people, it is with these people in mind that we share our Proudly Canadian program with you.
Over the coming weeks we will share a collection of stories about great Canadian companies. We think you will be surprised by how many products have Canadian connections. Products with ingredients sourced from across our country, products and concepts designed and developed here. Companies developing products with sustainability as a priority, making caring about the people and our world a significant reason for what they do.
To make it easy for you, you can find our Proudly Canadian products in-store by looking for our bold blue and red signs, or online at londondrugs.com. Be sure to follow our social feeds for ongoing Canadian stories and features!
What is Proudly Canadian ?
Designed in Canada – Products designed with Canadian innovation. In this category we also look for additional factors such as Canadian ownership, history of doing business in Canada and the number of Canadian employees.
Made in Canada – At least 51% of the total direct costs of producing the goods must be incurred in Canada. This can include Canadian ingredients, processing or manufacturing.
Canadian Proud – This designation lets us highlight products assembled in Canada with foreign parts, manufactured in Canada with imported resources, etc.
London Drugs is proudly 100% Canadian owned and operated since 1945
