5 International Brands That Are Entering Canada For The First Time

Canadians can now join in on all of the fun! A handful of international brands are finally making their marks in the country for the very first time. In turn, we won’t have to browse online or cross the border to get our hands on these products. We can’t wait to see what else this year has in store!

Here are international brands that are entering Canada for the first time.


The chic French fragrance brand, Diptyque, is opening its very first location in Toronto, Canada this year in Yorkdale Mall. Diptyque is known for its exceptional quality and for never using synthetic fragrances in any of its products. It not only offers candles and fragrances, but also diffusers, sprays, bath and body care, and home decor. The shop is set to open within the next couple of months, according to Retail Insider

Pret A Manger

Pret A Manger is looking to enter Canada through a partnership with A&W to start opening up shops. The agreement is for a two-year trial phase, and if everything works out well, A&W will be allowed to expand the brand throughout the rest of Canada. According to blogTO, a representative with A&W confirmed with them that pilot locations will in fact be in the GTA. 

Carlo’s Bakery

Carlo’s Bakery will soon have two Canadian storefronts on its list. Back in January, it opened its very first Bake Shop right in Port Credit to offer iconic cakes, lobster tails, sandwiches, coffee, and more. The second location will open this summer at 24 Bellair Street in Yorkville, Toronto.


Ganni is now in Canada with a physical store for the first time, right in Yorkdale Mall. According to Retail Insider, there will probably be a lot more Ganni shops in the near future since the brand has established partnerships with Hudson’s Bay and Holt Renfrew before the pandemic. You may have even noticed the assortment of the brand’s pieces while scrolling on the HBC site where you can shop Ganni without paying duties!


Toronto will be getting its very own Nobu by 2023 at 30 Mercer Street! Finally, Torontonians will get to experience the famous restaurant’s menu right in the city. Once completed, Nobu Toronto will be 45 storeys tall and will contain residential units and hotel luxury suites, plus the iconic two-level restaurant.
