Instacart has expanded to Quebec. This marks the first time the company has translated its same-day online grocery delivery platform from English, making it fully accessible in French.

Customers in Montreal can now have the groceries and goods delivered in as fast as an hour from nearly 25 Costco, Les Aliments M&M and Walmart locations. Following the initial Montreal launch, Instacart plans to expand to Quebec City, Sherbrooke and Gatineau over the coming months, and introduce more retailers including Pharmaprix and Sephora.

Instacart is now accessible in all 10 Canadian provinces and available to more than a million households in Quebec. Over the last year, Instacart has delivered groceries and essentials from more than 1,800 stores with more than 35 retailers countrywide.

“We’re proud to introduce Instacart’s first-ever French-language experience in Quebec,” said Chris Rogers, vice-president of retail at Instacart. 

To access Instacart’s French-language experience, customers must have the preferred language on their web browser or phone set to French Canada.

Instacart shoppers offer same-day delivery and pickup services to bring fresh groceries and everyday essentials to busy people and families across the U.S. and Canada. Instacart’s delivery service is available to over 85% of U.S. households and 80% of Canadian households.
