In 2019 the CMU along with the MCAC was accepted into the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) in the sports of soccer and volleyball.  The CCAA is a Canada-wide association including member conferences from British Columbia (PacWest), Alberta (ACAC), Manitoba (MCAC), Ontario (OCAA), Quebec (RSEQ), and the Atlantic Provinces (ACAA).

After two years of probationary membership, the MCAC sent its first representatives to the National Championships in the 2021-2022 season, which included Blazers men's volleyball as the first ever team to represent Manitoba in the sport of men's volleyball, and CMU's first ever delegation to a National Championship.

As a governing body of intercollegiate sport in Canada, the CCAA holds its member conferences and affiliated institutions to follow the vision, mission, values, and principles of the association.
