With holiday shopping in full swing, for the first time, Google Canada assembled a list of top retail searches by Canadians on Google last year.

Perhaps as a sign of the times, topping the list were online destinations Kijiji, eBay and Craigslist. According to reports, 93 per cent of Canadians are now searching for information about brands and products.

Who hasn’t had a wad of Canadian Tire money from time to time? We must be looking to spend it as the Canadian retailer came in at fourth on the list, followed by Walmart and Future Shop.
