A Directory of Black-Owned Businesses in Vancouver, BC Canada
Updated November 2022
I have compiled a list of as many black-owned businesses in Vancouver as I could find. I have categorized them to make it easy to find what you are looking for. Each business name is clickable so you can easily navigate to them. This way you are immediately directed to their website or social media making it easy for you to support them.
My hope is that this directory of black-owned businesses makes it easier to actually find and support these businesses in Vancouver rather than just share their names on Instagram for a fleeting moment.

Other Black-Owned Businesses in Vancouver
I did my best to find all of the black-owned businesses in Vancouver, scouring IG posts and searching online, but I’m sure I’m missing some. I also hope that I correctly wrote the business names as some varied from Instagram to their website.
Instagram has been a great platform for sharing information, quotes and striking imagery of protests, but it is a visual platform and isn’t the best avenue to share business information and website links. When shared in IG stories, they are temporary. You can’t easily share links on IG posts or click on anything embedded in an image.
These limitations make it difficult to actually find these businesses, let alone support them. This is why I created this directory, which I am constantly updating.
