This tax break will encourage Canadian consumers to shop nationally.

Industry Prospects

Childrenswear is expected to see only moderate growth in the coming years. Canadian birth rates are expected to remain low and with immigration generally only affecting older demographic segments, childrenswear is expected to register a CAGR of 1% at constant 2013 prices over the forecast period to reach C$3.4 billion, while volume of sales will remain largely flat. While fashion trends and sports apparel are expected to have some positive effect on value sales, the continuing strength of cross-border shopping and bargain shopping (as childrenswear is subject to quick wear and tear) will be impacting demand unfavourably.
