As part of CVCA’s D&I priorities and under the stewardship of the D&I committee, we are laser-focused on benchmarking and building a diverse talent pipeline within the Canadian VC and PE sectors.

The CVCA has formed a subcommittee of its D&I committee to launch the Diversity Internship Program.

The program has placed a number of diverse students (nominated by Canadian universities from across the country) into CVCA member firms as paid interns since 2021. CVCA supports each cohort with biweekly Lunch & Learn events and networking. 

Interested In Partnering?

The CVCA is always seeking partnerships with Canadian universities that would like to provide this opportunity for their students. Universities interested in this unique opportunity should contact the CVCA.
