Target underwent federal review, and it’s officially coming to Canada now

In April, the federal government announced Target would be undergoing a federal review to ensure that there is enough Canadian content sitting on shelves when the brand arrives in 2013. Now, the verdict is in: the retailer has Ottawa’s approval to convert approximately 135 former Zellers locations into Targets. The company plans to offer support for Canadian cultural events and organizations, promote and offer Canadian cultural products (Maple syrup? Planes, Trains and Automobiles on DVD?) and create 20,000 to 25,000 new jobs by 2015. [CBC]
