I chose a .CA domain because being recognized as a local Canadian designer was important to me. I believe it’s attractive for many buyers to know that they’re supporting local and makes the transaction feel more personal—which it 100% is! I am very proud to have created and built a Canadian made brand, and I wanted my domain to translate that.
