Interested in being a part of a team that is leading the evolution of retail in Canada?


Embracing and driving change is critical to our success. The complexity and rate at which the retail industry is transforming has increased exponentially in recent years and we are committed to being a leader in the industry.  As such we are relentlessly focused on innovating at every level of our business, investing in new technologies and products, and doubling down on the best talent to drive the company forward. It is an especially exciting time to join the Canadian Tire Family of Companies.

As Legal Counsel (Mark’s), you will serve as an integral part of the dynamic and well-positioned Canadian Tire Legal team, specifically supporting the marketing, intellectual property and information technology teams across our enterprise, although you will be based out of our Calgary Mark’s office where you will have the unique opportunity to also work one-on-one with many executives on that team.  In that capacity, you will work on a variety of licensing agreements, commercial agreements, marketing campaigns, intellectual property issues leading to organic and external growth opportunities, and special projects. 
This is an excellent opportunity for a skilled junior lawyer with a keen business sense, a passion for the field, the ability to handle high volume, and a desire to make a meaningful contribution, to join an exceptional legal team at one of the leading Canadian retail organizations.

  • Problem solvers with the ability to analyze and prioritize to meet business objectives,
  • Collaborative team players with superior influencing skills, who build relationships easily across various stakeholder groups to move initiatives forward

If you’re curious, ready to take on new challenges and open to doing things differently to help us evolve rapidly, then Canadian Tire is definitely the place to be.
