The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) has partnered with the International Franchise Association (IFA) to licence their Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) Certification Program for Canada.
The goal of the CFE Program is to educate individuals and organizations to the highest standards. This program is a leading resource to help franchise executives, managers and small business owners accelerate individual and organizational growth.
Certification speaks to a higher standard of professionalism and raises the bar for franchise training as a whole.
What is the Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) program?
Participants in the CFE Program will complete a diverse range of course offerings in franchise management, leadership, and small business in order to gain insights into franchise strategy and operations. This program will help individuals at emerging organizations learn how to run a small business while helping more established leaders understand how to successfully cultivate a growing enterprise.
Through the CFE Program, CFA members will gain additional knowledge and tools needed to reach their greatest potential. Students who successfully complete the program will receive the CFE certification, conferring strong credibility in their franchising expertise.
The CFE designation exemplifies a commitment and passion for franchising and the franchising community.
We are currently in the process of developing and “Canadianizing” the CFE educational program for Canada. The CFA's CFE certification program will officially launch in January 2021, so stay tuned for additional information!

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
I would strongly encourage CFA members to enrol in the CFE program, and for a number of reasons. First, it is one of the few organized programs available that offers certification in the field of franchising to its graduates. Second, the educational material covered will help enhance one’s understanding of franchising from both a business and a legal perspective. Third, it provides an excellent opportunity to network with like minded franchising professionals in an educational setting. The opportunities afforded by the CFE program are second to none.
