Benefits of Membership

A Bustling Private Facebook Group For Connecting With Your Fellow Canadian VAs

Sure there are many VA organizations you can join, and even though CAVA is the only one you really need to belong to, we won’t discourage you from joining any of the others out there. But, sometimes we can’t find the help and support we need anywhere else.

Our membership is now made up of more than 400 Canadian VAs.

When you have questions about your HST remittance, whether you should go with Bell or Rogers for your ISP, or want to chat about the latest episode of The Dragon's Den, the best place to go is to your fellow Canadians via our Facebook Group.

  • This is where alliances and referral networks are built.
  • This is where you combat those feelings of work-from-home-isolation.
  • This is your water cooler.
  • This is your lifeline!

How much will all this cost you?

Everything you just finished reading about – the whole kit ‘n caboodle – is going to set you back $97 per year. Yes you saw that right. $97 per year! Not per month, or bi-weekly. CAVA membership is yours for $97 per year.

Exclusive access to our RFP system ALONE is worth more than a yearly payment of $97 - retain one client and your membership has paid for itself!

This is one of the most cost effective ways you can possibly market your VA business. For that $97, your business is listed in our directory, you will be networking with VAs all over the country and timely notification of new RFPs are provided on the CAVA Facebook page. You really can’t go wrong with this monetarily tiny investment.

Special Offer for NEWBIES - $35 for 3 months

If you're still exploring the idea of becoming a VA we have a special 3 month membership that allows you to see what CAVA has to offer.  You won't be listed in the member directory but you will have access to the private Facebook group - that alone can prove to be invaluable.  There are many benefits of full membership that won't be available to you but you will get an opportunity to appreciate how important it is to become fully involved with CAVA.
