Retail Council of Canada to Launch Shopping Centre Study

Retail Council of Canada will be releasing a study ranking Canadian shopping centres on a variety of metrics, including productivity, size, and pedestrian count. The study will also provide statistical breakdowns for Canadian regions, as well as other useful information for those involved with and interested in the Canadian retail industry. It will be distributed and promoted to retailers and other industry players nationally, beginning in December. 

Initial study findings show that Canada's top malls continue to show strong sales levels, despite economic challenges in some regions. The study will also analyse what trends in the industry are contributing to shopping centre successes. 

There are several study sponsorship opportunities available for those seeking exposure to retailers and industry players, and interested parties are encouraged to act fast as time is limited. The study will be widely distributed and promoted to the industry, including Retail Council of Canada email subscribers, Canadian Retailer magazine subscribers, as well as to the Canadian press. Media sources will be targeted both nationally and locally to run stories, linking to the study. The study will also be profiled here on Retail Insider, which now sees over 300,000 monthly page views. For information on advertising or sponsorship opportunities, contact Mary Markou at As well, information and a rate card can be found at: Canadian Shopping Centre Study
