Mississauga-based Walmart Canada has launched a pilot program in the GTA that promises to deliver groceries to customers in as little as 30 minutes after receiving their online orders.

Through Walmart Now, an Instacart-powered rapid delivery service for grocery and convenience items, some 40 per cent of households in Mississauga, Brampton and other GTA communities will have access to the service for the duration of the pilot study.


Described as a “virtual convenience” store, Walmart Now will deliver any of some 4,000 of the store’s most-shopped items including fresh groceries, pantry items, snacks and household staples such as pet, baby and personal care items, and more.

Once ordered online, the items are picked up from 10 Walmart stores in the Toronto and surrounding area and then delivered to customers.

“Launching Walmart Now, our new Canadian convenience offering featuring our quickest delivery speeds, is proof that Walmart Canada is here to drive change in the e-commerce space,” Laurent Duray, chief e-commerce officer at Walmart Canada, said in an online statement. “We’re nimble, we’re determined and we’re here to change the way Canadians shop online with Walmart. Piloting 30-minute delivery is a milestone in our road map to making it faster, easier and more convenient than ever to shop with us.”

San Francisco-based Instacart noted that it has partnered with Walmart Canada since 2018 and provides grocery delivery in as fast as an hour from more than 250 Walmart stores nationwide via the Instacart App and Walmart.ca.

“We’re proud to grow our relationship with Walmart Canada to launch Walmart Now, a streamlined way for Canadian customers to access the groceries and goods they need from Walmart in as fast as 30-minutes,” said Chris Rogers, Instacart vice-president of retail. “Customers today expect convenience and quick delivery paired with broad selection. We know these components are fundamental as retailers seek to build the best online grocery experience for their customers. By collaborating with leading retailers like Walmart and providing Instacart Platform solutions that are purpose-built for grocery, we’re making it easier for retailers to get customers exactly what they need, when they need it.”
