 CopyRITE, the Toronto Metropolitan Students’ Union’s (Ryerson) on-campus print shop, has closed permanently. The on campus centre was operating at nearly a $200,000 deficit. Before the pandemic its profits around the $50,000. CopyRITE was funded by student fees. A May 31 release from the Student Union concluded that the closure “would be in the best interest of the overall university community.”

The printing business closed for over two years during the pandemic. Once it reopened in 2022, the print shop reportedly experienced a decrease in sales. CopyRITE used to be used a lot before [the pandemic], architectural printing, the School of Interior Design used to do all of their renderings and mock-ups [through CopyRITE], engineers used to print their capstone projects there. 
She said the TMSU consulted other print shops in the area, and many have been struggling to regain sales following the pandemic.
