AFP Canada, formed in 2017, was created to bring a Canadian perspective to AFP’s government relations and communications as well as to focus on priorities such as on Truth and Reconciliation. We represent over 3,000 fundraising professionals working to support causes and missions that help people from coast to coast to coast. We serve as part of the larger AFP Global network—the largest community of professional fundraisers in the world.

Guided by the AFP in Canada Strategic Plan, we focus on government relations and communications. Working in close partnership with 21 local chapters and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy – Canada, AFP Canada strives to stimulate a world of generosity through ethical and effective fundraising.
