VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TELUS Business is celebrating Small Business Month this October with the launch of ShopWithOwners.ca, a new online platform to connect Canadians with their favourite local shops, including past #StandWithOwners winners.
This platform will help support business owners across the country with gaining exposure to customers looking for local finds and gifts during the holiday season. Canadians will be able to search by location, keywords and categories to discover exceptional small businesses they can easily support within their community. Visitors will be able to learn more about the owner, their business and be directed to their website and social media pages.
“Small businesses are the heart of our communities and economy. TELUS has committed to support Canadian business through #StandWithOwners and ShopWithOwners.ca is another step in this commitment to support local,” said Navin Arora, Executive Vice-president, TELUS and President, TELUS Business Solutions. “Businesses that apply to be featured at ShopWithOwners.ca will have the opportunity to gain exposure and connect with customers, all for free. This is another way we are making the future friendly and supporting owners in a digital world.”
2022 #StandWithOwners technology refresh winner announced
This October also brings to a close the third #StandWithOwners program, which saw 30 local businesses across the country each receive over $25,000 in technology, funding and advertising. In addition to this prize package, BC based business Gabi & Jules, a local homemade pie and baked goods shop, was selected to receive an additional prize package that includes technology from TELUS and its partners Samsung and Cisco. Known for their focus on using seasonal, natural ingredients while also supporting autism awareness and inclusive hiring organizations across British Columbia, Lisa Beecroft, Co-owner of Gabi & Jules, will be able to continue to grow their business and their online ordering platform.
“When we found out we had won the #StandWithOwners contest, we were super excited. It’s not only going to allow us to invest in our business, but also it’s going to enhance the technologies that we rely on to run our business,” said Lisa Beecroft, Co-owner, Gabi & Jules. “Technology has been critical to being able to scale up our business.”
With funds to make their dreams a reality, service innovations to help them save time, and technology solutions that help them thrive in a digital world, TELUS Business is committed to championing local entrepreneurship.

The chief executive of Vale SA said on Friday the Brazilian iron ore miner is reconsidering a near-term spin-off of its base metals business and an eventual public listing. But rather than selling all or part of it, the company is now looking to separate and ring-fence the copper and nickel unit from the iron ore business as the two have different growth prospects, Eduardo Bartolomeo said at the FT Mining Summit. The idea is to eventually grow the base metals unit as big as Vale today, which has a market capitalisation of $66 billion, and take it to the public market, Bartolomeo said, without giving details on timing.

Inflation may be ruining everything from bond coupon interest payments to holiday travel plans but being able to put more away for retirement is one unexpected positive. On Friday, the Internal Revenue Service raised the amount of money one can put away into a 401(k), 403(b) and most 457 plans to $22,500–up approximately 9.8% from the current $20,500 limit, the hike is the largest increase ever made by the revenue service's history. Alongside new tax brackets also introduced by the IRS this week, the larger contribution room is meant to offset the rising cost of living that is chipping away at many people's retirement plans.
