VL infographic on canadian ecommerce 2016 online sales and business selling online

[Infographic] Canadian Ecommerce 2016


Last year, we wondered about the state of e-commerce in Canada in 2015.

This was the subject of a Financial Post article that featured VL along with one of our customers, Listen To Your Gut. The article, “Hordes of Canadians are shopping online, so why are our businesses failing to keep up?”, was highly discussed both online and offline, so we at VL took it one step further and authored an infographic on the subject.

And what we found was astounding!

in the 2015 infographic, based on research and statistics from 2015 and earlier, we clearly showed that Canadian businesses weren’t selling online, and our innovation index had dropped from a high in 2011.

It’s now been almost a year since we’ve published that infographic, and it was due for an update!

So how’s Canadian e-commerce doing now? Keep reading to find out!
