Who We Are. What We Do.

Arva invests in companies to help them grow and prosper.

Founded in 1956, Arva Limited is a private Canadian corporation owned and managed by the Stevens family.

Arva is in the private equity investment business. Our investment horizon is long-term, and our objective is to help companies build a foundation for sustainable, long-term success.

We purchase or acquire an interest in companies with strong fundamentals and growth potential whose owners are seeking an exit or who will benefit from our financial and strategic support. We stay in the businesses as long as we are able to add value to them.

Arva helps companies to grow and prosper by enhancing their competitive advantage. We are best known for bringing and applying a highly disciplined operational capability to businesses that are challenged in this regard.
