About Venus Envy

We were first established in April 1998 as a retail store in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Our second location opened in Ottawa's Byward Market area in January 2001. We have since moved to a bigger and better location at 226 Bank Street in Ottawa's Centertown.

Our stores carry high-quality adult products and offer our customers respectful, well-informed advice and education. Our attention to education and customer service has consistently won both our stores "Best Adult Store" awards in polls run by the local weekly papers.

Venus Envy operates bursary programs in Ottawa and Halifax to support women and trans people working towards a degree, diploma or certificate in any subject. 

Our mission statement lays out our values and approach to the diverse world of sex and sexuality.
