Who We Are?
Our focus at CAFP
is to provide ongoing continuing education and lifelong learning experiences for our diverse membership. CAFP offers excellent educational programs at our branch meetings and our annual national conference to help foodservice professionals become familiar with current standards and trends. As well, as part of our membership package, members are offered complementary subscriptions to top Canadian foodservice publications.
What do We Do?
The Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals (CAFP)
Originally founded over 110 years ago, has withstood the test of time by maintaining its relevance in a continually changing business environment. By listening to our members, tracking their needs, and those of the foodservice and hospitality industry, we have adapted our programs to meet these evolving requirements. CAFP is one of the originators of change management.
Where to find Us?
We honour our commitment to the foodservice industry through our support of Student Branches and provide numerous bursaries to deserving students each year - both at the Branch and National levels. CAFP encourages students in related foodservices programs to become the leaders of tomorrow, today. Many of our student members find employment opportunities though their CAFP experiences and become industry leaders. Contact Us

A Welcome Message From Our President
Once again, I enjoyed a very successful CAFP National conference, this time in Fredericton, NB.
The conference’s wonderful mix of education and networking allows members to return to their branches with renewed energy to prepare for their upcoming year. Stay tuned for the Food Bites National Newsletter (Conference Edition) which features the speakers’ educational sessions and the announcements of this year’s awards including the Kraft National Food Executive of the Year and the Aramark Gold Plate winner.
This year, the National Conference featured the launch of our association’s new website. I invite all members to utilize the member’s area of the website to connect with your colleagues by way of our discussion boards, our social media platforms, or email. If you are not yet a member, please take a look through our website. You will see that in addition to allowing you to network with industry professionals in many facets of the food industry, CAFP will support you in your role and will create new opportunities for professional development. Take the time to see when and where the next meeting will take place near you—we welcome both members and non-members alike!
I am looking forward to a bright year of education, networking, and mentorship!
