Keeping the retail community strong is Retail Council of Canada’s top priority. In light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates, we are cancelling the in person 2020 STORE Conference. We are reassessing how to best serve our community and hope to have more information to share with you shortly.

If you are a member of RCC, please take advantage of the regular Coronavirus/COVID-19 updates and resources we are providing to keep you informed and prepared. Visit RCC's COVID-19 update page for more information.
