Celebrating the Empowering Direct Selling Opportunity
To help raise awareness of the direct selling model, DSA Canada celebrates Direct Sellers Day annually on the third Wednesday in September.
Our first annual Direct Sellers Day took place on September 16, 2020. The theme, Direct. Social. Influential, focused on how direct selling empowers individuals and highlighted the positive social and influential impact independent sales consultants (ISCs) and direct sellers have on Canadians.
Individuals across Canada celebrated with us by sharing their direct, social and influential direct selling stories.

Why it’s Important to Raise Awareness
Many Canadians are not aware of the direct selling model and how it can be a benefit to them, especially during these uncertain times. Participating in Direct Sellers Day, or simply sharing your experiences, will help people become aware of the following key direct selling benefits:
- Local and Direct Access to Goods and Services
Help others understand there are other ways to purchase goods and services safely in their community without having to visit a traditional retail location.
- Income Supplementation
Help others become aware of alternate ways that they can be supplementing their current earnings. Becoming a full or part-time independent sales consultant for a direct seller, could be a viable entrepreneurial opportunity without the need for an initial large financial investment.
- Consumer Protection
DSA Canada member companies and their independent sales consultants abide by a strict industry Codes of Ethics and Business Practices which covers product sales, consumer care, recruitment and sales force relations.
