It's working fine for me, although I'm on a desktop. Maybe try deleting your browser cache?

I gave up and got the items from Lowes instead.

I didn't see this thread until after. I never thought to change browser, I just signed out and back in again.

Was able to browse earlier using Chrome, but couldn't add anything to cart. Cleared cookies and cache and now I get the "We're quite busy" message.

It's similar with Firefox in that I can browse, but can't add to cart.

Clearing cache in FF works.

Yes, but the website is slow as hell right now.

5pm the site magically worked, a bit sluggish but searches worked and I could add and purchase items.

their system must be unprepared for extra traffic because of the Ontario store closures effective today. Their decades long stupidity in not fully embracing e-commerce has come home to roost.......

Canadian Tire, as I know it, runs on Azure for the most part so I don't know why they're down. Maybe it's a logistical blocker more than anything (eg they can't keep up with filling orders like with online grocery pickup)

I was told there was high traffic on the website and a lot of people made/were trying to make orders online.
Their system was down yesterday and won't be up and running until 6pm. They are only starting to process the online orders now.
I asked because I made an order after midnight on Saturday.. well Sunday. They confirmed they received my order request this morning and will be processing it sometime today.
