  • Wal-Mart Canada expansion: 29 new supercentres

    MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Wal-Mart Canada says it plans to complete another 29 supercentre projects in the fiscal year beginning Feb. 1.

    The retailer says the expansion is expected to generate about 3,700 construction jobs, 1,000 store jobs and 300 distribution centre jobs across Canada.

    The new supercentres are in addition to the 11 Wal-Mart supercentres which opened across Canada in January.
