It’s a social convention to defuse conflict. Usually, it’s the person who didn’t do anything wrong who says “sorry” to acknowledge that, although they might be upset, they aren’t going to take it personally.
Saying “hey watch where you’re going” would escalate the situation and that’s not something you want to do. Canada is for the most part a “non-honour” society, so unlike people from warmer climes, we don’t see saying “sorry” as something that will cause us a loss of face or a loss of respect. It’s merely a way to ensure that we keep the peace so that we can continue to deal with the person in the event that we still need them when the weather turns cold.

sorry that explanation isn’t very good…..
June 17, 2015 at 11:10 pm
That explanation was great. I understand completely where you’re coming from. Around here, if you hear something unfortunate such as a friend telling you that a relative passed away, and you respond with, “Oh, I’m so sorry!” they’ll say, “It’s not your fault,” as though I actually killed your damn third cousin. It’s meant to serve as an expression of concern and sympathy, not to apologize for anything *I* did.
But I have been told my whole life that I say sorry too much. I’ve always apologized for everything and people tell me I need to stop. Rarely I apologize because I truly feel remorse for something I caused, whether by accident or on purpose; it’s mostly, like you said, to avoid conflict. I am not a pugnacious person. I like to be pleasant with people if there aren’t any major factors that I need to call out against the other party.
Sorry if that was too long or verbose.
