The Dealhack Canadian First Responder Discounts List is the result of our quarterly survey of brands that offer discounts to all Canadian police officers, firefighters, paramedics, correctional officers, and emergency medical technicians (EMTs). Every three months, our team independently verifies each and every discount on this list. We also add more brands to the list regularly when we come across them.
The list currently includes more than 50 brands conveniently broken down into 10 categories.
In addition to the discounts listed below, many businesses offer informal discounts to first responders across Canada. When buying something, always be sure to ask the store associate if they offer discounts to law enforcement personnel, firefighters, and EMTs. Stores that offer first responder discounts usually request you to provide any valid proof of employment, so make sure to bring your government-issued ID.
