Committees

The CVCA is a member-driven organization. The private capital industry does face some tough challenges, but we can determine our future through the commitment of our diverse and experienced membership.

More than 100 CVCA members from across Canada assist the association each year by serving on our board or one of our committees. These volunteers work together to keep our industry thriving and competitive.
