However, the most valuable brands this year include many other recognizable names like Lululemon, Artitzia, Canada Dry, and Dollarama.

Despite their success, Canadian consumers ranked over 50% of these brands as either high-priced, overpriced, or at risk of being overpriced.

Kantar says that if these brands hope to hang onto their success amid a recession, they need to give people better value for their dollar with new offers or get better at communicating their value.
