Why Join Family Enterprise Canada?
Joining our community will help strengthen your family relationships, specially during high risk moments such as business transition. Our members form a vibrant community of peers representing the diversity, complexity and scope of businesses families across Canada. Connecting with other families who are navigating similar complex situations will give you the tools to tackle the difficult conversations and potential conflicts that impact every business family.
At Family Enterprise Canada, we provide an array of family-focused peer programs, educational tools and social events, geared specifically to the unique needs of our community, to help you thrive as a family building a legacy across generations.
With two different experiences to choose from – Progressive and Foundational – we encourage you to explore your options. Take the Family Membership Discovery journey for next steps and to learn more.
Our family joined Family Enterprise Canada as a forum to provide guidance, educational and networking opportunities for both the second generation and incoming third generation. It is always helpful to share ideas, best practices and thoughtful insight with families that are experiencing the same challenges and opportunities.
