Of course. Lard was the shortening everybody used before we had "hydrogenated vegetable shortening."

It was the "cooking oil" of choice before the first World War.

Had LARD ever been used for cooking in Canada ?
i have no DIRECT knowledge about Canada ..
. it is accepted KNOWLEDGE that PEOPLE for centuries have RENDERED FAT from animals they killed then butcher...
.. LARD by definition is FAT from a PIG ..
.. for it to be used in CANADA .. there would need to be PIGS raised or imported to Canada or the LARD to be imported ..
.. so the question is LARD SOLD in CANADA for cooking .....
. YES a brand name of Lard sold in Canada is " Tenderflake "

There was a time when Canada was populated, but vegetable oils were not available; certainly not Crisco, Rapeseed (Canola) or others. In those unthikable days, Lard, Tallow and Schmaltz (rendered fats from hogs, beef and chickens) were widely used. Ducks and lamb also contributed to the cause. And of course some use of these fats still endure. Let us take a moment to praise confit.

No. Never. You only find it in grocery stores because people use it to lubricate door hinges.

No Canada is the only place on the face of the earth that has never used lard.
Actually in reality there is probably no place on the face of the earth that has never used lard. One of the products obtained from butchering hogs or any animal in the porcine family.
