We shop local, too
We’re proud to contribute in a major way to Canada’s economy, not just by hiring locally, but by sourcing products from local suppliers, big and small. This helps boost regional economies, creating opportunities for people and companies from coast to coast.
Sometimes small producers, like Ohh! Foods in the video above, have difficulty gaining traction nationally. That’s why Walmart Canada seeks them out and supports them to develop their products and grow their businesses. It’s a win-win: our customers get to discover unique items, and local ventures find the audience they deserve.
We aim to source all in-season
produce from Canadian growers.

Klemtu Spirit Hot Smoked Atlantic Salmon is as grassroots as seafood gets. Produced by the Kitasoo/Xai’Xais First Nation in a remote area of British Columbia’s central coast, the success of this Indigenous-owned supplier has rippled through the community: Klemtu has the highest employment rate in coastal B.C.
