Hi Ritu,
Welcome to the community.
Yes, you can run shopping campaigns in Canada.

Have a read of this for some updates and links to getting started with shopping campaigns.

the message is referring to google-shopping -- the
website (service) -- not a shopping-campaign type.

google-shopping-campaigns are available to target canada;
however, those product-listing-ads will be seen only aside

(google.ca) organic search results, not on google-shopping.

currently, there is no separate google-shopping-website
(shopping-service) under the google.ca (canada domain).

Need slight clarification here Celebird, by above sentences you mean the shopping campaigns/PLA targeted to Canada, it will not show locally? OR you mean to say the ads would show normally when a customer types a relevant search term in google.ca? Sorry its a bit confusing to me

the latter --

(b) the ads would show normally when a customer types a relevant search term in google.ca

 

google is simply warning that there is no separate

google-shopping-site for canda product-listing-ads --

like there is for france or the u.k. for example:

http://www.google.fr/shopping

http://www.google.co.uk/shopping
