The Canadian Standards Association, also known as the CSA, is a not-for-profit Standards organization with the stated aim of developing standards for use in 57 different areas of specialisation. CSA is a provider of standards, related elearning, as well as Advisory Services.

CSA is composed of representatives from government, industry, and consumer groups.

CSA began as the Canadian Engineering Standards Association(CESA) in 1919, federally chartered to create standards. During World War I, lack of interoperability between technical resources led to frustration, injury, and death. Britain requested that Canada form a standards committee.

Today, CSA is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada, a crown corporation mandated with promoting efficient and effective standardisation in Canada, as a standards development organisation and as a certification body. This accredition verifies that CSA is competent to carry out these functions, and is based on internationally recognised criteria and procedures.

Their registered mark shows that a product has been independently tested and certified to meet recognized standards for safety or performance.
