Which banners and associations support the program?
In fact, “Well Made Here” literally belongs to the banners and professional associations that co-founded the non-profit organization under federal jurisdiction on October 31, 2018. Other partners will be added over time …
The development of “Well Made Here” hinges on the retail networks of the various founding banners comprised of nearly 1,900 points of sale, some of which are corporate, most of which are operated by owner-retailers who are affiliated with them. Their geographic distribution reflects Canadian demography and its five major regions.
