What we do
The Canadian Vaping Association is a registered national not-for-profit organization, established as the voice of Canada's burgeoning vaping industry.
Founded in 2014, The CVA represents vaping retailers and manufacturers throughout Canada.
The CVA is the primary liaison between the vaping industry and the provincial and federal governments on all legislative and regulatory issues related to the industry. The CVA's primary goal is to ensure that government regulation is reasonable and practical, by proactively engaging with legislators, regulators, health officers and the media.
Our vision is to work with all levels of government, stakeholders and consumer groups to fulfill our commitment to develop and maintain a sustainable and accountable vaping industry, centered around harm reduction and consumer safety.
Consistency — Whether applied to messaging, conduct, communications or scheduled activities, The CVA is committed to remaining a consistent and engaged advocate for public policy and consumer safety.
Knowledge and Experience — The CVA is committed to sharing its decades worth of institutional knowledge about the vaping industry and the arguments supporting vaping. Considering the outcomes of harm reduction is the primary motivation of our association.
Collectivity — While the individual businesses of each respective owners must be the preeminent consideration, the strength of The CVA is derived from being united, collaborative and forward thinking.
Public Policy Centered — Credibility is achieved by demonstrating that The CVA is a contributing member of the harm reduction system and not a collection of business owners protecting their own assets. We strive to be a “go to” source of information for both government and stakeholders.
