Since we first launched Promoted Pins in 2014, they’ve helped the millions of people who visit Pinterest to find ideas for all parts of their lives. Earlier this year we made Promoted Pins available to businesses in the UK, and now we’re excited to announce our expansion into Canada.

Pinterest is popular in Canada! In fact:

  • In 2015, the number of Pinners in Canada increased by 50% YoY
  • More than 4.4 billion ideas have been saved by Canadian Pinners
  • Every day, Pinners in Canada save 3.9 million Pins
  • The most popular categories include: food & drink, DIY & crafts, women's fashion, home decor and hair & beauty

We’ve started working with partners who’ve already seen a lot of engagement from their content on Pinterest, including Sport Chek and Canadian Tire.

Why Pinterest Ads work

Because more than 75% of Pins come from businesses,...

Now when your customers visit you on Pinterest, you can greet them with a hand-picked showcase of the best ideas you have to offer. The new rotating showcase sits right at the top of your profile, so it’s the first thing people see. You get to decide how you introduce yourself, and how you shape the story of your business.

More control over what people see

When you’re on the web, you can choose up to five of your boards to feature. If you have any Buyable Pins to share, you also have the option to highlight them in the first “Shop” slot. Update your showcase as often as you want to highlight what’s new this season, what’s on sale or whatever else makes sense for your business.

The same design across iPhone, Android and web
