Ecommerce growth has led online sales to account for 8% of all sales across Canada
- The data, collected by Statistics Canada, shows the large growth of ecommerce over the last 5 months
- For May, online sales came to C$3.8 billion in total, a 112% increase on online sales in May of last year. This figure does not include sales at online-only U.S. stores such as Amazon
- The ecommerce boost has helped many stores, especially in the retail sector, get through the effects of Covid-19, as companies look for new ways to connect to customers.
