The Canadian Tire
Corporate Home Office is situated in the heart of Toronto which allows our
employees to be part of Canada’s business nucleus. The growth and success of
Canadian Tire can be credited to the loyalty of the dedicated employees and the
perfect locations of stores. Although employees at Canadian Tire Corporation do
business in a global marketplace, it maintains the corporate headquarters in
Canada to ensure that they have the ability to create their own
roadmap. It provides easy accessibility to the customers that helps to
save their important time.

PRODUCTS:

We’re reducing the amount of paper we use in Canadian Tire’s
marketing materials and including more recycled content in our flyers. In 2008
our flyers contained about seven per cent recycled material, and increased to
approximately 55 per cent in 2009. We’ve also developed new procurement and
usage guidelines for our paper suppliers to help ensure the sustainability of
forests and natural resources. The guidelines promote sustainable forest
management through the purchase of paper originating from third-party,
independently certified forests; efficient use of wood fiber; efficient
resource utilization; social responsibility; efficient use of paper; climate
change and energy conservation initiatives; forest conservation;  paper recycling; and, continuous improvement
efforts.
