The Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) is the national voice and forum for in-house counsel in Canada.

Our members are lawyers engaged in practice in corporations, business enterprises, associations, institutions, not-for-profit organizations, government and regulatory boards and agencies, Crown corporations, and regional or municipal corporations. We also welcome associate members from law firms whose support and expertise enrich our educational programs and events.

The objectives of the CCCA, as set out in our enabling by-laws, are:

  • to provide a national forum for in-house counsel to develop their professional skills and careers;
  • to promote a better understanding of and appreciation for the professional role and function of in-house counsel;
  • to provide products and services to support members in their role as in-house counsel;
  • to facilitate networking among members;
  • to sponsor and endorse seminars and other meetings, and to produce publications and other communications, that promote the continuing professional development of in-house counsel;
  • to work with other Conferences, Sections and Committees of the Canadian Bar Association on matters of mutual concern;
  • to liaise with in-house counsel organizations in other jurisdictions; and
  • to promote CCCA and CBA membership.

Established in 1988 and now more than 4500 in-house counsel strong, the CCCA is proud to be affiliated with the Canadian Bar Association, the essential ally and advocate of all members of the legal profession in Canada.
