Products/Brands or Clients:
Preparing Canadians for the jobs and joys of everyday life in Canada is a mission Canadian Tire Corporation began in 1922. Nine decades later, Canadian Tire remains one of Canada’s most iconic companies. We are committed to continued growth, improving the customer experience, productivity and financial stability.
Our roots are in Canadian Tire Retail, which started as an auto garage before branching into other product categories. We have grown the CTR network dramatically while adding other business lines: Canadian Tire Gas+, Financial Services, PartSource, Mark’s and, most recently, FGL Sports.
Putting the customer at the centre of everything we do is essential to providing a high-quality and consistent customer experience across our network of more than 1,700 retail and gasoline outlets. Through our cutting edge store design, digital marketing, e-commerce and the use of leading-edge customer analytics, award winning call centre and state of the art distribution centres, Canadian Tire is continually evolving so we are better able to respond to the changing expectations of consumers.
