Celebrate Direct Sellers Day on September 15 

DS Day 2021 email header with image rvDirect Sellers Day is an annual celebration that takes place on the third Wednesday in September to help raise awareness of the direct selling opportunity across Canada.

Led by DSA Canada and its members, direct sellers and their independent sales consultants share their personal success stories and achievements to help Canadians better understand the following key benefits of direct selling:

  1. Income Supplementation
    Participating in direct selling as a full-or-part-time independent sales consultant for a direct seller, could be a viable way for Canadians to supplement their income without the need for an initial large financial investment.
  2. Local and Direct Access to Goods and Services
    Direct selling is an alternate way Canadian consumers can purchase goods and services in their community without having to visit a traditional retail location.
  3. 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 which protects consumers and potential entrepreneurs from pyramid schemes, fraudulent activity and false product and earnings claims.
