In response to the pandemic and expat movements, the CACC has merged regional committees into a Canada Committee. We are now accepting expression of interest for those wishing to get involved as a volunteer and expand their professional network. The intention of this Committee is to set a structure and foundation for all other activities within the Canadian (i.e. Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, etc.) business community.

To contact the Canada Committee please email: globalengagement@cacc.com.au
