Announcing Family Enterprise Canada

Published: May 17, 2021

OAKVILLE, ON – May 17, 2021 – Family Enterprise Xchange is excited to announce that we have evolved into Family Enterprise Canada. A name that better reflects who and what we are today: One face, one voice, one community for Canadian family enterprise.

It has been a year of change for the world, for business families and for Family Enterprise Canada. Like many of you, we are emerging from the pandemic looking a little bit different – larger, stronger, and more national. These exciting changes prompted us to make a small but meaningful adjustment to our name.” Bill Brushett, CEO & President, Family Enterprise Canada.

In addition to our new name, we are updating our membership model. We now offer a Family Membership with two distinct experiences for business families in the Family Enterprise Canada community:

  • Our Progressive Experience is designed with multi-generational learning families in mind. With enhanced benefits, including membership in Family Business Network International (FBN-I), the Progressive Experience will provide business families with advanced educational opportunities, leadership development, as well as global connections, perspectives, thought leaders, and events.
  • Our Foundational Experience is designed to meet the needs and interests of Canadian family businesses interested in peer-to-peer conversations, foundational business family learning with a focus on transition, family dynamics, and the initial stages of NextGen development.
  • We have developed the Family Membership Assessment to help business families choose which experience is the best fit for their goals.

With this change, we will continue to provide unconditional support to family enterprises and focus on enabling them to thrive and succeed for generations.”
