Understanding your industry’s size and trends can give you a distinct advantage as you enter the workforce upon graduation. Recent data from Statistics Canada shows retail as a growing and diverse sector. In the first quarter of 2023, the Food and Beverage sector had the highest revenue, bringing in $41.7 million. Motor vehicles followed with sales of $35.2 million. Home-centric categories, including housewares, appliances, and electronics, totalled $14.8 million.


This data indicates Canada has a thriving retail landscape across sectors. There are many career avenues for those interested in this field.
