U.S. Retailers to Shape Future of Canadian Shopping

The continuous flow of U.S. retailers into Canada is expected to have a lasting impact on Canadian retailers and consumers, according to Colliers International’s 2013 Spring Retail Report released Wednesday.

The report said the entrance of U.S. retailers is already one of the drivers behind the retail building boom Canada has experienced in recent years, with an average of 11.5 million square feet of leasable shopping area added annually and tens of millions of square feet currently under construction.

This addition of shopping space to the national inventory, while very large, is not likely to lead to a market bubble, provided Canada continues to demonstrate strong economic and population growth.
