Number of pet stores in Canada by region 2018 As of December 2018, Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, was home to the most pet and pet supplies stores across the country. At that time, there were 723 such stores in Ontario. Quebec and British Columbia, the second and third most populous provinces, came next in the ranking with 447 and 328 stores respectively.
Are brick-and-mortar pet stores still necessary?

In short, yes. Despite the rise of e-commerce, the majority of Canadian pet owners continue to purchase pet food in-store, with just 9.3 percent stating that they bought pet food online in a recent survey.

Canadian pet expenditure

The average Canadian household spends 631 Canadian dollars annually on their pets, thus creating a huge market for retailers. Although pet expenditure has fluctuated in past years, hitting a high of 650 Canadian dollars in 2016, spending has witnessed a long-term increase since 2010. In the fourth quarter of 2018, retail sales of pet food, supplies and accessories reached an all-time high of 1.57 billion Canadian dollars, an increase of almost 50 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.
