About Us

Hello and welcome to Pearl Creek Candles. We are so happy you are here with us.

We are Ryan & Victoria McNeil, the founders, and owners of Pearl Creek Candles.

Originally, we both are from the beautiful and peacefully quaint province of Newfoundland, but like so many others, we both moved west; found one another and are happily living in Alberta. Alberta has been our home now for 15 years and counting. It has given us so much and it has become our home away from home.

We certainly do miss our native province and being close to our family and friends, but we have been given so many wonderful opportunities here we decided to stay. We have met so many new and amazing people around Alberta, that they have become a part of our family. 

Again, we are so excited to have started this new journey in our lives and we are glad you dropped by to see what we offer. 

Our Journey

Our dream of owning a business started in 2019 and since then we have been committed to a product that is not only environmentally sustainable and friendly, but enjoyable and relaxing; I mean who does not love a good candle. Each candle that we hand pour is created with 100% Natural Soy wax with a delicate balance of fragrance that brings a subtle yet welcoming scent to your home.

Why we wanted to do more

Since being from an island one can assume, we love the ocean, and you would be right! Almost every vacation we have taken has been to a sunny beach destination. We love the ocean breezes, the sound of the waves crashing and rolling back into the sea, and that soft sand under our feet; it's simply just good for the mind and soul. However, like everyone else around our beautiful and fragile water systems, we started to notice plastic pollution rolling up the beaches or in the waterways. As we walked along the beaches and rivers we would happily spend our time picking it up as we went. It may be a small act, but it can lead to a bigger more important impact.

So as part of our business promise to ourselves and you, we have decided to incorporate this in everything we do. See more at Our Commitment Blog post.
