Become a Member

Membership

The CCSA has two classes of members: retailer and associate members (product manufacturers and service providers to the industry). By working together, our members have the power and capacity to make a significant difference in this industry.

Become a Member

When you join the CCSA or any of our regional affiliates, you add your voice to a powerful community of retailers, distributors and vendors/suppliers who speak with one loud voice to advance the industry.

Become a Retail Member

Retail membership starts through one of our regional associations. Simply visit the website of the regional association where your store(s) is(are) located and materials on how you can join can be found there. Links to these sites are:

Atlantic Convenience Stores Association (ACSA)
Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA)
Quebec Convenience Stores Association (QCSA)
Western Convenience Stores Association (WCSA)

Once you become a member of a regional association, you automatically become a member of the CCSA. We have done that so that our association can stay connected to retailers across the country at a local level – they can understand the local issues, create relationships with retailers, suppliers, government officials and the media at a local level. This allows us to stay in touch with the pulse of the industry in every corner of the country.

Become a National Associate Member

National Suppliers of Goods & Services
The ability of the CCSA and its regional affiliates to create positive change for the industry is directly linked to the continued support from our supplier partners. If you are a national supplier of goods or services to the convenience store industry, we would encourage you to join as a national member. For more information on the benefits of becoming a National Associate Member, please see the attached document. For information on the benefits of becoming a member, please email us at info@theccsa.ca and we’d be happy to speak with you further.

Regional Suppliers
If you are a regional or provincial supplier of goods or services (that is, your business does not operate nationally) to the convenience store industry, we’d encourage you to get involved at the regional level where we have options more suited to your business. For more information on Regional Associate Membership, simply visit the website of the regional association where your business is located and materials on how you can join can be found there.
