About the National Convenience Stores Distributors Association
Founded in 1955, the National Convenience Stores Distributors Association (NACDA) represents the interests of independent and institutional distributors and manufacturers in Canada who serve the convenience market. NACDA members supply convenience stores across the country with food, beverage and general merchandise items. Many of our members are family-owned companies, and have been in operation for several decades, and some for more than 100 years!
The convenience store industry is an important commercial sector in Canada that provides over 230,000 Canadians with employment and represents approximately $51.7 billion in overall sales.
