    Perhaps the needs/demographic of the consumer is different in Canada, compared to the USA.  All comes down to marketing and knowing your target population.

    Canadians might not redeem coupons in that they might spend more money. A coupon’s purpose is to entice shoppers to try a new product. Some consumers are brand loyal and do not wish to switch brands to save some money. The discipline required to not spend additional money may be lacking from some shoppers.

    My first guess would be that coupon marketing plans have simply not proven as successful in Canada.  That advertising to Canadians requires a different approach because Canadians prioritize differently than Americans on which brand to buy.  It also could be because there is less competition.
