County launches second annual Haldimand Holiday Wish Book, encourages residents to shop local

For the second year, Haldimand County’s Economic Development and Tourism division has released the Haldimand Holiday Wish Book to encourage residents to shop & support local.

Featuring over 30 local businesses, the Holiday Wish Book is a one stop guide for local gift ideas, hand-made products and unique experiences.

Copies are being distributed to all households in by mail and will also be available for pickup at local libraries. An online, downloadable version of the Holiday Wish Book is also available at

“We received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community and local businesses when we launched the 2020 Wish Book and made it a priority to bring it back for 2021,” said Lidy Romanuk, Haldimand’s Manager of Economic Development & Tourism.

“Haldimand County has so many unique shops and experiences. We encourage residents and visitors to explore all our community has to offer and to continue supporting local,” added Romanuk.

The Holiday Wish Book also has an online directory featuring even more local businesses. Anyone can browse vendor listings and shop local from the comfort of home via the Haldimand County Marketplace.

The County’s Economic Development & Tourism division is also running 12 Days of Giveaways starting December 1, 2021 and launching a winter sweepstakes contest.
