Canadian Flag

Our iconic bullseye is recognized worldwide, and we think our newest neighbor will be delighted to see it around town since they already have an affinity to all things red and white.  So please welcome Target’s northern newcomers – Canada!

More than 70 percent of Canadians are already familiar with Target and that number is about to rise. In 2013 and 2014, we’ll open up 125-135 Target stores across the sprawling country. Where? Our property development team is already on the hunt selecting future locations in exciting cities like Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, Mississauga and Toronto (North America’s fifth-largest city!). 

Fun fact: While strolling through the aisles of our future Canadian stores, you’ll see signs and product labels in English and French, so brush up on your Français!


Do as the Canadians Do
Canadians may speak English and French, but the question is can you speak Canadian?! See if you can match the English word with its American definition. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see if you’ve got the northern knowhow.
