Our history

Back in 2008, the Canadian Convenience Stores Association approached a group of convenience store retailers in Atlantic Canada about the idea of establishing an autonomous Atlantic Canada division. This new division would complement divisions in Québec, Ontario and Western Canada.

Convenience store owners and operators in Atlantic Canada, both corporate chains and independents, were enthusiastic about the possibility of what a regional association could potentially do for the industry and the Atlantic Convenience Stores Association, more commonly referred to today as the ACSA, was established.

Our mission

Much of the work the ACSA is involved with is liaising with provincial governments on a wide range of regulatory matters affecting the convenience store industry in Atlantic Canada. This includes retail gasoline, the retailing of beverage alcohol, tobacco and contraband tobacco, workplace health and safety, minium wage, environmental stewardship and government red tape.

Perhaps more importantly, however, the ACSA is tasked with helping consumers, the media, elected officials and government bureaucrats understand and appreciate that convenience stores are an integral part of the communities they serve and have an important role to play in the lifeblood of a vibrant and prosperous community.
