Who We Are

Founded in 1968, the Canadian Kitchen Cabinet Association (CKCA) is a national association that strives to promote the interests and conserve the rights of manufacturers of kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and related millwork, as well as their suppliers and dealers, throughout Canada.  The CKCA is located in Ottawa. Jim Lawrence from Avondale  Kitchens  serves as President. The Association holds an annual National Forum early in the year as well as Regional Meetings throughout Canada. At these meetings dynamic guest speakers address topical and timely industry issues, while tours of member manufacturing plants or other related companies in the woodworking sector are organized as an integral part of these sessions. Participants come away from these sessions with the latest information on suppliers’ products, and with knowledge they can immediately apply to their own business.

Call for Committee members!


CKCA is looking for additional participation in the following committees:

Communications, Programs, Membership, Certification.

If you feel you can contribute to our committees, please contact us by email at info@ckca.ca;

or call directly 613-692-5858

A commitment of a 1 hour teleconference per month is all that is required, as well as your expertise and commitment.

Joining a committee is a great way to get involved, share ideas and network at the same time.
