Who is Be Local?

The Be Local network is a network of community-focused businesses locally owned and operated in Calgary. It is a network of businesses that care about community, the local economy, and the environment.

The Be Local YYC store is operated by Momentum, in partnership with Sunalta Community Association as our pickup location and banking partner, and Calgary Dollars to offer amazing rewards for spending locally.
