FOUNDING YEARS

Before the creation of CABS, its precursor the Canadian Business Student Council (CBSC) existed from the early 1990’s,  reflecting the same spirit of camaraderie among business student leaders across Canada.

During its existence, member schools worked to create the first Roundtable, Canadian Commerce Games, ECLR, WCLR and other conferences, which have all been absorbed by CABS since then.

The CBSC was dissolved in 2007 to reform with a unified national strategy the following year, as The Canadian Association of Business Students. The Canadian Association of Business Students was formally registered as a non-for-profit cooperation with the Canadian Federal Government on November 13th, 2012.

CABS INCORPORATION

At the first CABS-owned Roundtable conference, hosted by the University of Windsor, the first official elections for the CABS management team were held. Their featured milestones include the first organizational structure, internal-tool building as well as the first bid processes. As elected to, the management team under the Hein administration served two full consecutive years.
