Convenience Stores throughout Ontario were honoured to have a week dedicated to the hard working employees in the convenience industry.
We were overwhelmed by the support we received from retailers, customers, & politicians throughout the province. Dozens of MPP’s & MP’s stopped in to meet the hard working families who were excited with photo ops taken in their stores.
Special thanks to MPP Stan Cho for dedicating this week to our industry supported by Premier Ford. The winners were the Children’s Charities as a result of working together. The four charities are: CHEO – Ottawa, Children’s Foundation Hospital – London, McMaster Children’s Hospital – Hamilton & Sick Kids in Toronto.
Both Ministers of Small Business (MP Mary Ng & MPP Nina Tangri) were a big part of the week.
The OCSA is proud to see the voice of the independents is being heard at all levels of government as demonstrated during Convenience Week.
Thanks to all who made this week a reality as we work for a stronger & better convenience store future in Ontario.
Special thanks to the Ontario Lottery for your support of the industry and the week with additional commissions paid out on Lightning Lotto to all convenience stores with a donation to the charity.
