The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators (CICBV) is nationally and internationally recognized as the pre-eminent business valuation organization in Canada. The CICBV establishes the practice standards, educational requirements, and ethical guidelines, which support and promote the integrity of the CBV profession for the benefit of its more than 1,400 Members. The CICBV was founded in 1971 by 28 valuation professionals under the leadership of the late Mr. George Ovens. At the time, the introduction of taxation of capital gains in Canada facilitated the general need for business valuation. Since then, the profession has grown exponentially as the demand for valuations expanded to other fields beyond taxation.
