SIAL canada started in 2001 and was organised on a biannual basis, during which it was known as SIAL Montreal. That show was the culmination of the work of 3 organisations that are all shareholders in the event: the ADAQ (Association des détaillants en alimentation du Québec), the Agri-food Export Group of Quebec-canada, and Comexposium (owner of the SIAL shows and subsidiary of the Unibail Group). In 2007, SIAL Montreal became an annual show in order to keep up with the constantly changing food market and to make the most of the business opportunities found therein. In 2009, such changes in the market led the show to reinforce its position as a national and international force by becoming SIAL canada. In 2010, it would again solidify its standing by beginning to hold the show both in Montreal (in even years) and in canada’s financial heart, Toronto (in odd years). Last year, and for the first time in Toronto, the event registered a record number of exhibitors with 697, coming from 37 countries.
In North America, Expo canada France Inc. (part of the Comexposium network) is responsible for the organisation of SIAL canada. On the same dates and in the same location, Expo canada France Inc. also puts on another show that aims to meet the needs of an ever-changing food market —this show is SET canada— a national exhibition of equipment, technology and services for the food-service and hotel industries..Track：(SIAL Canada )
