Join local Black-owned Business owner, Ashleigh Montague, who along with her two sisters Abygail and Alexandria founded BLK OWNED, a platform for Black-owned businesses to showcase their products and services.

Ashleigh is passionate about impacting the communities in which she lives, learns and works. Her love for community is seen through the initiatives and non-profit organizations she has co-founded; Janus Skills 4 Success, Operation Feed the Homeless and Nu Omega Zeta - Canada’s 2nd black-focused sorority. Ashleigh embodies what it means to be a “True Hamiltonian”. In 2020, she co-founded BLK OWNED, a platform designed to celebrate, showcase, elevate and support black-owned businesses. In a time of instability, she used this platform to redirect traffic to black-owned businesses in Hamilton through effective and innovative free marketing. As a Connection Specialist, her life’s mission is to motivate and inspire youth through the art of connecting with self, others and community.
