Hi everyone :)

I'm wondering if anyone can help me find info on Canada or Ontario's pet industry revenue.

I'm looking to start a pet related business and in my business plan I would like to show evidence that Canada/Ontario has a growing pet industry and some figures of how much we spend on our pets each year. Maybe also some figures show what percentages of homes own dogs/pets. Things like that, to help prove starting this business will be a good thing!

Google searching has become difficult - results are either American or outdated.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Just Google "Canadian Pet Industry Statistics" without the quotes and you will find your info

Thanks...I've done that, but I'm not quite getting the results I need. Lots of the results are outdated as far back as 2003, or are "estimates" without proper sources.

I need current (ie: 2010 or newer) statistics with proper sources cited.

I was hoping someone might know of an actual website or something that might give this kind of info, and be credible enough to use as a resource.

Thanks anyways!
