About Walmart

Sam Walton opened the first Walmart in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas with the simple premise of offering quality goods at lower prices. His vision and drive made Walmart the largest retailer in the world and brings value to millions of customers every day, helping them save money and live better.

In 1994, Walmart Canada launched with 122 stores. Twenty-six years later, we’re more than 400 stores strong, employing more than 100,000 people in Canada.

Quality products at everyday low prices – that’s the promise Sam Walton made when he started Walmart, and it’s as true today more than 50 years later. We consider it both our mission and our privilege to give Canadians access to the products they need at the prices they can afford, both in stores and online at Walmart.ca.

Walmart will accommodate the disability-related needs of applicants and associates as required by law.
