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.

If you’re constantly considering the answers to questions like: How might tech create a more meaningful shopping experience? What are the best parts of shopping? What is your least favourite part? Then this could be the right challenge for you.

If you have a technology, innovation, or solution that will enable customers to spend less time on the not-so-fun parts of shopping, and more time living, please submit here for potential collaboration!

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?

What will the future of retail look like? 

Are you someone who seeks out solutions before problems even arise?

Do you want to be a part of transforming how, why, and where people shop?

By partnering with Walmart Canada’s new innovation team Blue Labs, you can fundamentally change the retail, e-commerce and omni-channel experience for the better, all while ensuring that customers are at the centre of all that we do.

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.
