Sporting goods in Canada - additional information

Like many other nations, Canadian’s enjoy a number of different sports, including ice hockey and lacrosse, the country’s official winter and summer games. Perhaps for this reason, the retail sales of the sporting goods equipment has continued to increase. The leading sporting goods and sportswear retailer in Canada is Canadian Tire’s FGL Sports. In 2016, FGL Sports contributed almost 2.2 billion Canadian dollars to Canadian Tire’s revenue with 433 outlets across the country.

The consumer price index (CPI) for sporting goods in Canada has generally fallen year-over-year since its base value of 100 in 2002. This means that the price an average Canadian household paid for sporting goods decreased each year during this time frame.

Due to the country’s geographical location, many regions in Canada provide occasions for winter sports. As well as the national winter sport, ice hockey, Canada’s landscape offers many spots for skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing or snowmobiling. The traditional purpose of snowmobiling was the transport of material and other necessities in snowy conditions, but in recent years snowmobiles have found a recreational purpose. Snowmobile sales reached over 47,000 units in 2017/18, with the largest number of registrations taking place in Quebec.
