The PC Insiders Report is Here for the Holidays
President’s Choice is bringing more fun and less stress to the holidays with new products and easy entertaining inspiration
BRAMPTON, ON, November 8, 2022 – As the holiday season kicks off, President’s Choice® (PC) is set to make this year’s entertainment easier and more delicious than ever. Today, the PC® Insiders ReportTM Holiday Edition arrives in stores and online with hosting tips and cooking inspiration to help bring more merry and less stress to the season.
While the holidays are often considered the most magical time of year, Canadians know that the magic of bringing traditions and special moments to life doesn’t happen by accident. A recent survey* commissioned by the team at President’s Choice found that 82 per cent of Canadians agreed that holiday traditions are important to them. However, two-thirds are stressed about how to make the holidays magical every year, without missing out themselves.
“At President’s Choice we’ve been making the holidays easy and delicious for decades," says Galen Weston, President and Chairman of Loblaw Companies Limited, “and this year the team has outdone itself with dozens of showstopping PC desserts, mains, kitchen essentials, holiday décor and of course, ready-to-cook appetizers. Everything to minimize your time in the kitchen and maximize your time making holiday memories with family and friends.”
We know that the holiday season is often filled with family, food, and, well, stress. For Canadians looking to up the “wow” factor this season with minimal stress, PC® has them covered.

*About the PC Insiders Report Omnibus Survey:
This Maru Public Opinion survey conducted on behalf of Citizen Relations was undertaken by the sample and data collection experts at Maru/Blue. 1,514 randomly selected Canadian adults who are Maru Voice Canada online panelists were surveyed from October 13th to October 14th 2022. The results of this study have been weighted by education, age, gender and region (and in Quebec, language) to match the population, according to Census data. This is to ensure the sample is representative of the entire adult population of Canada. For comparison purposes, a probability sample of this size that is comprised of full-time employed respondents used in this study has an estimated margin of error (which measures sampling variability) of +/- 3.0%, 19 times out of 20. Discrepancies in or between totals when compared to the data tables are due to rounding.
