Director's Message

It has been my great pleasure to have served as the Director of the Centre for the Study of Commercial Activity (CSCA) at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Toronto Metropolitan University. At the CSCA we have taken pride in both contributing to the education of our students and providing reports, location data and metrics to support both academic research and business decision-making needs.

For over 30 years the CSCA functioned as a not-for-profit, but not-for-loss, university level research centre with private and public sector support promoting retail research, innovation, education and training. As Toronto Metropolitan University continues to advance its research objectives as an institution, the CSCA is transitioning into the Retail Leadership Institute (RLI). I look forward to being able to share more details about the RLI as they become available.

The CSCA website will continue to be available for download of our research insights through 2023. So, if you are not already a member of the Centre you can still sign up for a free member account to access our research.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
