We’re intentional at Walmart Canada about helping people save money and live better through our commitments to creating opportunity, prioritizing environmental sustainability, and lifting up the communities we serve.

Established in 2021, Blue Labs sits at the edge of Walmart Canada to transform the future of retail. We actively collaborate with Canadian and global innovation ecosystems to incubate disruptive and radical innovation, transforming the future of how, why and where people shop.

If you are interested in creating the retail experience of tomorrow, or want to stay connected with new announcements and events, follow Blue Labs on LinkedIn and Twitter.


At Walmart, we are pushing the envelope of innovation and looking at ways to launch new and disruptive products and services that make a meaningful difference in how we serve our customers and associates.

Consider questions like: How can the advancement of technology in your retail shopping experience help improve your overall well-being? How might retail or shopping experiences contribute to access to equitable and accessible wellness? What are the barriers, and how might technology, or retail, make taking care of yourself easier?

If you believe you have a solution, technology, or innovation that will enable people to live better, we’d love to hear from you.

If your innovative solution doesn't quite fit this criteria- we've got plenty of other Walmart Challenges that you can explore.

Please review all challenges and only apply to the one most relevant to you.

As a global innovation challenge, Walmart Canada and Blue Labs is open to collaborations with individuals, academia, and organizations of any size and scope.


What's in it for you?

By partnering with Walmart Canada’s new innovation team Blue Labs, you can fundamentally change the way retail enables and interacts with the integrated health experience for the better.

A successful collaboration could mean anything from partnering in the co-development of an Innovation launch, to providing Walmart Canada and Blue Labs with a technology or service that supports our innovation efforts.
