February is Black History Month and we join the rest of Canada in celebrating. Black History Month is an important opportunity for us all to recognize, honour, and reflect on the achievements, contributions, and legacies of Black Canadians.
Black History Month is a reminder of the ongoing importance of educating ourselves about anti-Black racism in Canada while committing to action, growth, and change. It is important that we continue to take steps toward building a safe, inclusive, and diverse space that will inspire and support Black Canadians.
This month, we are highlighting some amazing Black-owned businesses on HomeStars. If you’re looking to connect or partner with some of HomeStars’ top pros, keep reading.

Throughout Landscaping Corp.
“Reliable.” “Dependable.” “Kind.” Just a few words homeowners have used in their reviews to share their experience with Throughout Landscaping Corp. This Lawn Maintenance business, located in Pickering, ON, has some of our favourite reviews. For example, Pauline in Toronto wrote, “Phil and his team did an awesome job. They went above and beyond both in terms of the service and the communication they provided throughout. We are very happy and will be hiring them again in the spring. Highly recommend. Bonus: Phil is absolutely one of the nicest guys you’ll meet and if you ask nicely he will send you pics of his cute puppy Buttons!” Be sure to give Throughout Landscaping Corp. a follow on Instagram (maybe you’ll even catch a glimpse of Buttons).
Highlighting Black-owned businesses is one way to share your support. However, this is by no means the only way to be an ally. Support comes in many forms and is constantly evolving. We encourage you to celebrate Black communities and organizations while continuing to work toward a more inclusive space for future generations.
