Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) Program

Executive Education for Professional Advisors

The FEA Program is for professional advisors from a wide range of disciplines who have significant technical knowledge and are looking to add to their skill set to better serve their family enterprise clients. Family Enterprise Canada grants the FEA designation to qualified professionals who fulfill this executive education program and complete a certification process.

Annually, we offer three opportunities to become fluent in “family enterprise” with cohorts starting in January, May and September. Our program features a blended combination of online and in-person delivery, in several exciting locations across Canada; the highlight being FEA Forum in October when all cohorts gather for an educational retreat.

If you make an investment in the program, you get a quick return.
