Apple Maps Now Features Indoor Maps at 18 Shopping Malls in Canada

Apple Maps has been updated with indoor maps of at least 18 shopping malls in several Canadian cities and suburbs, including Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, Montréal, Calgary, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Vancouver, and Dieppe, New Brunswick.


Nearly all of the shopping malls are Cadillac Fairview properties, with the sole exception being Square One in Mississauga:
  • Galeries D'Anjou in Montréal
  • Carrefour Laval in Laval
  • Promenades St-Bruno in Saint-Bruno
  • Fairview Pointe Claire in Pointe-Claire
  • Rideau Centre in Ottawa
  • Markville in Markham
  • Shops at Don Mills in Toronto
  • Fairview Mall in Toronto
  • Sherway Gardens in Toronto
  • Square One in Mississauga
  • Lime Ridge in Hamilton
  • Fairview Park in Kitchener
  • Masonville Place in London
  • Polo Park in Winnipeg
  • Chinook Centre in Calgary
  • Market Mall in Calgary
  • Richmond Centre in Richmond
  • Champlain Place in Dieppe, New Brunswick
Apple has yet to add indoor maps for the Eaton Centre in Toronto and the Pacific Centre in Vancouver, two of the biggest Cadillac Fairview malls. Two other notable exclusions are Yorkdale in Toronto and the Centre Eaton de Montréal.

Apple launched indoor maps at select airports and shopping malls in 2017, with a list of locations available on its iOS Feature Availability page. To view an indoor map, open the Apple Maps app on an iPhone or iPad running iOS 11 or later, search for a supported location, zoom in, and tap on "Look Inside" if necessary.

Indoor maps at shopping malls make it easier to find the exact location of stores, restaurants, and restrooms on each floor, in addition to guest services, parking, escalators, stairs, and so forth. Or, swipe up on the place card to browse by category, such as clothes, shoes, accessories, beauty, food, and drinks.

Likewise, at airports, Apple Maps users can zoom in to view terminals, boarding gates, security checkpoints, airline check-in desks, baggage claim carousels, information kiosks, restrooms, stores, restaurants, parking, and more.

Now we just need a time machine to take us back to a year when we still shopped at malls :)

I was really rooting for Apple on this one, but Google has wayyyyyyyy more locations, better info, and a better UI. Apple announced this a year ago, and they don’t even have the international airport in my state yet.

I feel this feature is a little too late as Malls across the US are closing at unprecedented rates and or already closed.

Apple should focus on inside airports and sports arenas, I think it would be a more valuable tool.

Will knowing the lay of the malls so exactly reduce spillover shopping? I see this reducing mall sales. Get in. Get what you came for. Get out. The mall thrives on you wandering and buying stuff needlessly.

Nope. Not a Cadillac Fairview property, which these all are, except for Square One.

I’m pretty sure every mall in the world has had a directory map display inside since the beginning of time. I’d rather use my battery on something useful instead. How much time and money is Apple wasting on this nonsense?!
