In June 2020, MCC Canada made the difficult decision to close the corporate operations of Ten Thousand Villages Canada. Three locally-run stores decided to continue operating independently and have a licensing agreement with Ten Thousand Villages USA that allows them to continue to use the Ten Thousand Villages brand. These stores are located in Cobourg, ON, Brandon, MB, and Abbotsford, BC. Three other former stores have re-branded and currently still operate in Calgary, AB, Edmonton, AB, and Port Colborne, ON. All six stores are committed to continuing the fair trade mission of Ten Thousand Villages in Canada.

Who We Are!

Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. Its a place where you can explore and connect with your global village.

From communities throughout the developing world, every inspired design is crafted with love using local materials (usually natural or recycled) and time-honoured skills by makers we have known and worked with for years.

Every purchase improves the lives of makers by supporting their craft and providing a fair, stable income.

We offer a way for you to become part of the story, to shop your values and give gifts with meaning.

Because this is bigger than us.

Our Mission

Create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships.
