CSAE is Canada’s only national organization with a primary focus on serving the needs of association professionals and the business members who provide vital products and services to support the sector.

Our mandate is to:

  • Support association professionals in their work
  • Provide a bridge for associations to access quality services and products
  • Increase the effectiveness, image, and impact of associations to better serve their members and society
Established in 1951, Canada’s “association of associations” serves as a resource to Canada’s association community, with chapters in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. Members of the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) represent industry and professional associations, charities and issue-specific organizations across Canada.
