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 conferences 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
Welcome to our new website! If this is your first time on our site, please take time to see what this organization has to offer. We help connect foodservice professionals with their peers, potential employers and potential employees. We are able to provide a channel for our members to network and develop themselves professionally with regular educational sessions.
Check out the information from the branch nearest you to see when and where the next event will take place—we welcome both members and non-members alike to attend our monthly meetings. Not only do they allow for professional collaboration, but they offer industry-relevant education to strengthen you as a professional food service leader!
Our premier event for both education and networking is our National Conference. This year, our east-coast members hosted a fabulous event in Fredericton. The wonderful mix of education and networking allowed the members to return to their local branches with renewed energy for the upcoming year.
Our conference team is well underway to finalizing the plans for the next National Conference in Kananaskis from May 11 to 14, 2016. I urge you to consider this great opportunity to grow professionally while enjoying the beauty of the Rocky Mountains.
For more information on membership and for any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
