Number of pet stores in Canada by region 2016 As of December 2016, Ontario, Canada’s most populous province , was home to the most pet and pet supplies stores across the country.

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.
