Statista dossier on the impact of the coronavirus on retail, e-commerce, and FMCG in Canada

This dossier provides some of the most recent data relating to the impact of the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic on the retail landscape in Canada. Over the course of 2020 and beyond, every province had reported cases of COVID-19, which is why the country had taken strict measures to fight the spread of the pandemic, such as temporarily closing schools, bars, restaurants, and movie theaters, banning large public gatherings, and encouraging people to work from home where possible. To provide an understanding of the impact of the coronavirus on the retail sector, the dossier has been broken down into the following chapters: overview, general retail figures, food & clothing stores, cannabis, e-commerce, and shopping location preference.
