Hosted in beautiful Quebec, the 2023 Drummondville Pets Canada Industry Show welcomed over 1300 pet professionals from all over the province and beyond to the largest industry-exclusive event in the region.  This show marked the official introduction of Pets Canada (formerly PIJAC Canada) in Quebec and a celebration of 35 years as Canada’s largest pet professional network.  We were delighted to have former CEO, Louis McCann as our guest of honor. Everyone was delighted to see him tour the show and help us toast three and a half decades of success.
