When Sam Walton opened his first Walmart, he was inspired by a simple goal – to help people save money so they could live better. That goal became a defining principle in everything Sam and his associates did and, in pursuing it, they changed the world. Walmart Canada is proud to be part of this legacy, opening its doors in 1994 through the acquisition of the Woolco chain. In the 27 years since we first launched in Canada, we’ve lived up to Sam’s promise, and Canadians are better for it. Here’s the impact of the Walmart business in Canada:

· More than 400 stores in communities across Canada
· 1.5 million customers in-store daily
· 900,000 daily online customers @ Walmart.ca
· One of Canada’s largest employers with more than 100,000 associates
· Work with 2,200 Canadian suppliers
· Raised and donated more than $500 million to charities
· Recognized by Canadians as the country’s biggest corporate champions of diversity and inclusion (Solutions Research Group survey of Canadians)
· One of the Top 10 Most Influential Brands in Canada (Ipsos Research)
· The Most Popular Brand in Canada (Business Financing – based on Google searches)
Providing our associates every opportunity to succeed is just as important as helping Canadian families save money and live better.
We believe its our duty and responsibility to give back into communities across Canada, as it’s where our customers and associates live, work and play.
At Walmart, we are on a journey to do right by our planet and do everything we can do reduce our impact on the environment.
