Historically, many Canadian consumers make purchases from the US retail and DTC market, since Canadian retailers have been slower to develop ecommerce channels. However, Canada is a fast-growing market with ecommerce sales and is expected to increase an additional 11% and account for 14.6% of total retail sales in 2023. Canadian mobile sales are expected to reach $34.25 billion in 2023, growing to more than a third of total retail ecommerce sales.
