What is Kijiji?

Kijiji is a platform that allows Canadians to exchange goods and services, find work, and build their businesses locally.

Kijiji (pronounced key-gee-gee) is Swahili for “village”. We chose our name because it captures the essence of what we are creating — a site where people can connect with others in their community. Whether you’re looking for a new phone, a local tradesman to redo your kitchen, or a knitting club, Kijiji allows all Canadians to connect with each other through our online platform. Trade, discover, inspire!
