CPF has approximately 150 chapters across Canada. It’s an impressive feat that we are proud of, but it’s not enough to serve every community and every student who can and should have the chance to reap the benefits of a quality FSL education.
If you are a motivated individual who’s passionate about FSL and your community is not currently being served by a municipal, district, or county chapter of CPF, you may want to consider starting one!
Each of our many chapters began thanks to the devoted parents, teachers, grandparents, students, and other volunteers who took the initiative to bring CPF to their community. All of our chapters are entirely grassroots in nature: not-for-profit, volunteer-run institutions that work with the local schools, school board(s), city councils, provincial/territorial branches of CPF, and even provincial, territorial, and federal politicians—all in the name of FSL education.
To find out if a chapter is operating in your community, and to get involved by either joining your local chapter team or starting one yourself please send us a message: firstname.lastname@example.org
