Store Member Benefits

Campus Stores Canada is the only organization in Canada representing university- and college-owned campus stores.

It’s not easy being an independently-owned campus retailer. But we’re here to help. We draw from a variety of resources to curate the most helpful and important information and resources for our members and other stakeholders.
