Our Story


When Sam Walton first opened Walmart over 50 years ago, he believed in leadership through service. Today Walmart associates around the world embody this vision and demonstrate leadership daily. From the associate who provides customer service in store to the associates who work with our suppliers to bring you quality products at low prices, Walmart associates are true leaders. The executive team in Canada is no exception. This dynamic, diverse and skilled group of associates lead by example everyday with one common goal: Helping Canadians save money so they can live better.
