Community

CSC (Campus Stores Canada) is a community of institutionally owned and operated campus retailers, their service providers, publishers and suppliers. Together we work to ensure a true north strong and independent campus retail industry. We work together to lower the cost of all learning materials, keep money on campus, and get school spirit to all the members of our institutions.

Why be a part of CSC?

BiiG

Every year at the end of January CSC convenes our conference and trade show: BiiG. Networking, workshops, seminars, peer education, product roll-out, supplier feedback and policy sessions take place in five days. This show is when we get to showcase what has worked, and what’s next for the Canadian campus retail industry. This conference features our annual trade show, when buyers from across the country meet suppliers and do a large part of their shopping. Members and Partners get exclusive access and discounts to BiiG. Click here for more details.

Advocacy

Campus Stores Canada believes that the only way to serve our institutions is by being institutionally owned and operated. Keeping the money on campus allows your students, faculty, administrators and alumni to have access to everything they need while controlling costs. We work directly with institutions who are independent to stay independent, and those who are evaluating the spectrum independent models on how their institution can benefit.

We also take part in public policy development, working to lower the cost of course material and to develop the next generation of learning materials.
