MCC Canada made the difficult decision to close corporate operations of Ten Thousand Villages Canada in June 2020. Four stores decided to continue operating independently and have a licensing agreement with MCC Canada to continue using the Ten Thousand Villages brand. Licensed stores include Cobourg, Ontario; Brandon, Manitoba; Steinbach, Manitoba and Abbotsford, B.C. A few other stores decided to rebrand and continue operating independently. These stores are not licensed as a Ten Thousand Villages store and are not associated with stores continuing to operate as a Ten Thousand Villages store.

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.
