About This Quiz

Canada is filled with many unique brands that can't be found anywhere else in the world. From food to clothes and everything in between, there's a Canadian retailer for everything! Every retailer is known for something, whether it's their logo or brand colours or the products and brands that they offer. Can you remember them all?

One of Canada's oldest companies is the Hudson's Bay Company. It still exists today, but has a much different purpose and look. While many of the companies that are around today don't have as much history with the country, they are all important to the culture. One example is Tim Horton's, which is almost synonymous with the name "Canada!" Other prominent Canadian companies are found not just around town, but also around malls. Many clothing retailers are located in malls rather than in outlet stores. But we'd bet that you might find a handful in their larger outlet form!

You pass by them, enter them and make purchases almost every day. So, do you consider yourself to be the ultimate Canadian shopper? Then you'll have to put your Canadian shopping skills to the test, and see if you can buy out every company on this quiz!
