About Us

The word “kijiji” (pronounced like key-gee-gee) means “village” in Swahili. This name was chosen because it captures the essence of what we are creating – a site where people can connect with others in their community.

Kijiji is Canada’s most popular local classifieds site. Kijiji offers a convenient, fun, and easy way for people in the same city to buy, sell, trade and help each other out in areas such as goods, cars, services, housing and jobs.

Kijiji is an environmentally friendly way to recycle things you no longer use without leaving your neighbourhood. Because Kijiji connections are between people who live near each other, you can always see and touch an item before you buy.

With an easy-to-use format and an amazing variety of local ads, Kijiji is a unique community where everyone is committed to sharing more, wasting less, and making money off the unused possessions cluttering up houses across Canada!

Kijiji was launched in Montreal and Quebec City in February 2005. In November 2005, Kijiji expanded across the rest of Canada and is now in over 100 cities coast to coast. We continue to add new cities where there is high demand, so if you need Kijiji for your area, let us know!

Kijiji Canada exists for one simple reason: to enable all Canadians to benefit from trading safely and conveniently within their community. It’s a rare day when you’re not doing at least one thing where Kijiji could help: buying a car, looking for a job, selling your log cabin, lining up tickets to a hockey game, or just looking for a great deal on just about anything. There’s always “someone home”, and we’re here to help.
