Who We Are

The Canadian Capital Markets Association (CCMA) is a national, federally incorporated, not-for-profit organization, launched in 1999 to identify, analyze and recommend ways to meet the challenges and opportunities facing Canadian and international capital markets.


To enhance the competitiveness of Canada’s capital markets through a forum of industry experts who provide leadership and direction to the investment community.

Our Mandate

To communicate, educate and help co-ordinate the different segments of the investment industry on projects and initiatives spanning multiple parts of Canada’s capital markets.

Who We Serve

Participating under the co-ordinating umbrella of the Canadian Capital Market Association (CCMA) are dealers, custodians, asset managers and industry associations, etc.; key securities infrastructure, such as exchanges, The Canadian Depository of Securities (CDS) and Fundserv; back-office service providers and vendors; and other stakeholders (e.g., regulators including SROs).

How We Work

Our Board of Directors, representing the Canadian capital markets and with industry input, determines which cross-investment-industry initiative(s) the CCMA focuses resources on.  The issue(s) will determine which industry segments, firms, industry associations, support and other organizations become involved and how.  Usually this is done through CCMA committee members.

Countdown to T+2 on Sept. 5, 2017

What's New

The CCMA’s 2015-17 resources are dedicated to co-ordinating Canadian efforts to shorten the settlement cycle – the number of days between the date of a trade (T) and the day it settles – when the buyer’s payment for a trade is exchanged for the seller’s securities – to no more than two, or T+2.
