10% Shift
Nova Scotia

10% Shift!
  • Altogether Nova Scotians spend $20 billion a year.

    By shifting just 10% of that spending to
    local goods and services, we can provide a substantial boost to Nova Scotia's communities.

    How big a boost?
    One far greater than — perhaps double —
    the recently announced $25 billion
    federal ship building program! *

  • Nova Scotians spend over $2 billion
    a year on groceries.

    By shifting just 10% of that spending to
    local food producers, we can provide a substantial
    boost to Nova Scotia's agriculture.

    How big a boost?
    Collectively 10% of our buying power amounts to over $50,000 (more than double average farm net income) for every active farm in Nova Scotia! *

  • The average wage earner in Nova Scotia
    makes about $750 a week.

    If we each spent 10% (say even 50 bucks a week) on local good and services, we'd be injecting $1 billion directly into the Nova Scotian economy each year!

    The 10% Shift is NOT about spending more.
    It's about directing your spending to maximize the benefits for your community. *
