Our Story

From the unique flavours, special gifts, vibrant artisan work, and memorable moments, local businesses are at the heart of any flourishing community. But many of our local businesses are often hard to find.

Why? Because typical online spaces continue to be dominated by large corporate players, pushing small local businesses to the wayside. Passionate about supporting small indie local providers and frustrated by the unnecessary difficulty of finding them online, we decided to level the playing field and created vLife. We launched in Halifax in 2019 and now feature over 70 awesome small indie Nova Scotian businesses on vLife – you can check them out.

We’re proud to be the world’s first (and only) social enterprise platform exclusively featuring small indie business to the growing number of buy-local shoppers looking to connect with them. We love our Nova Scotia vLife community and are ready to bring vLife to the rest of the world. Interested in getting us to help grow your local home? Great! Contact us here; we’d love to hear from you!
