The Foundational Experience
Build a strong foundation
Our Foundational Experience is designed to meet the needs and interests of Canadian family businesses interested in peer-to-peer conversations and foundational business family learning, with a focus on transition, family dynamics and the initial stages of NextGen development.
The Foundational Experience includes membership in Family Enterprise Canada for not just yourself, but for up to 10 family members, because we believe in the importance of a family learning and sharing together!
