Corporate Leadership Program

As a CFA Corporate Leader you gain the unique opportunity to update the industry on your new developments, products and initiatives. You will also be invited to share your policy and government relations efforts with representatives from Canada’s regional and commodity organizations. Your partnership agreement with CFA also gives you access to top level meetings and exclusive marketing channels.

These opportunities are offered to you through a combination of formal and informal activities, events and services that collectively provide you with year-round prominence within Canada’s farming community in a productive and cost-effective manner.
