When Dr Aba Mortley opened her first Cher-Mère Day Spa in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, she was continuing her family's beauty business legacy from Trinidad. And last month she continued to make that legacy proud when she won her category in the Rise Up Pitch Competition, an online black Canadian business competition, and secured a covid19 innovation grant.
Launch Lab is a regional innovation centre that kickstarts new businesses and helps established ones grow and scale.
Dr. Aba Mortley, of Cher-Mère day spas won $10,000 in a competition for black women entrepreneurs. Her business pitch was influenced by four generation of women in her family, and she says that the money won will go towards building her online presence.
One Kingston nail salon is thinking outside the box in an effort to drum up business and keep clients safe. Cher-Mère Day Spa has set up manicure stations outside of their downtown store.
It’s been nearly a month since Binh’s Nail and Spa was forced to temporarily close because of an outbreak that led to at least 30 COVID-19 cases. But as of today, KFL&A public health says Binh’s — along with several other nail salons in Kingston — are allowed to reopen.
I met Aba years ago at a local event and we’ve been connected ever since. I admire Aba for all of the work she does for our community (she does a lot of volunteer work and is on many, many committees!) while running two spas (and raising four children!)!
A group of local businesses have come together to make a ‘YGK box’ containing specialty items from each store.

We are a city for experiencing and enjoying. Our vibrant arts and culture scene connects residents and visitors alike. Visit Kingston has invited the makers of Kingston to take over our channels to perform a concert, showcase their artistry, guide parents through a craft for kids, and share their passion and creativity with the city and beyond. We hope this connection will bring our community together while we are at home and support the creative scene we all love. Participating artists will be compensated with an honorarium.
