Canada is one of the largest countries in the world but despite this, it has a surprisingly small population (35 million) most of whom reside in cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Calgary. Canada obviously has close ties to its nearest neighbour, the US, but no matter where you are located you will be able to source a shipping rate that is favourable via our global shipping marketplace. A significant portion of Canada's citizens are heavily influenced by their French heritage, and both English and French are official languages. Quebec is the second most populous region, with French being the language predominantly used. Canada has a very strong economy which therefore means a fair deal of trade is done with countries around the globe, meaning the amount of goods being imported continues to grow. Canada is also considered to be one of the world's most prosperous countries with the rise of eCommerce and online retail in general pushing the volumes of goods being shipped into Canada on a steady upward trend. E-commerce could account for 10% of all retail sales in Canada within the next few years, as consumers take advantage of growing omnichannel opportunities. According to eMarketer, retail e-commerce sales amounted to C$34.04bn in 2016. The fear of Amazon completely controlling the eCommerce market and the strength of the Canadian dollar are two significant factors in Canada retail market upping their game in terms of eCommerce, so with more and more users showing an interest in finding the best deals online, it is a great time to be sending parcels to Canada.
