Providing the Right Guidance and Capital to the People and Companies With Whom We Partner.

Clairvest’s mission is to partner with entrepreneurs to help them build strategically significant businesses. Founded in 1987 by a group of successful entrepreneurs, Clairvest is a top performing private equity management firm with over CAD $2.5 billion of capital under management. As a publicly listed company (TSX: CVG), Clairvest manages its own capital by co-investing alongside institutional investors in owner-led businesses.

Our management teams trust our ability to support them through their most important milestones as they grow their companies, take on new challenges, make acquisitions, and build their legacies. We have an effective, well-developed playbook for value creation that speaks from our experience of helping to build companies.
