The 50, a collaboration between the CVCA and the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS), will be an annual online guide to the Canadian venture capital (VC) ecosystem and feature 50 of Canada’s VC firms. The aim of The 50 is to showcase members of the CVCA to foreign Limited Partners (LPs) and General Partners (GPs), expanding the global network of Canadian VC funds and building investment interest in Canada.

The committee is tasked to review the applicants and oversee the selection process. The Committee will ensure that the profiled VC firms cover a range of sectors and investment stages, with additional consideration given to first-time/emerging funds as well as a focus on diversity, equality, and inclusion.
