The Canadian Craft Spirits Association (CCSA) is offering Free Membership for Producers and Stakeholders as you recover from the Pandemic and economic downturn.
We work with Govt. and partners to promote our memebrs products & brands to domestic and international markets.
CCSA supports the CCDA's efforts in lobby government for Excise Tax reduction, but that is not our focus.
CCSA will be working on several programs and initiatives to help the industry grow, Including:
Exhibiting for Free at our Canada Craft Spirits Festivals
Participating in our Partnered events across Canada
Showcasing your products through the Canada Gold Spirits program (includes events and export trade fairs)
Participation in our upcoming workshop series
Participation in Govt. funded initiatives
Our Membership for Distillers is Free and is a non-voting membership, which is the best model to allow us to deliver on our mandate and bring programs and value to you.
Access to Markets
The CCSA promotes Canadian Spirits to domestic and Foreign markets by attending, organizing and co-hosting a wide range of industry and public networking, trade events.
The CCSA will be holding online and live workshops for members to build on their industry knowledge and business development.
Working with Government & Stakeholders on Policy and Programs
We are engaged with several Federal agencies such as TBB, Agri-Food Canada, TCC, Global Affairs and others on their programs and services to our sector. We want to leverage funding and other opportunities to help our members build their business.
The Canadian Craft Distillers Alliance (CCDA), has taken ownership of calling for Govt. to amend the Excise Tax. We at CCSA, support their efforts and wish them success.
