Take the time to focus on what makes family business truly unique – the family!

The Canadian family enterprise community is gathering (virtually) to connect and focus on the family side of family business. Working on family dynamics, goals and vision helps build stronger families. And a strong family helps both the family and the business succeed for generations.

Join the family business community from across the country as we learn, share and grow together at the Canadian Family Enterprise Forum, happening over three half-days April 20 to 22, 2021. Take part in family-focused Interactive Workshops and Community Talks on the topics such as:

  • Managing competing needs and wants in the family
  • Supporting senior members of the family
  • The importance of individuality in the family enterprise
  • What’s required to successfully prepare for a sibling partnership?
  • Wealth – a blessing or a curse?
  • Common challenges couples face in business and how they impact the relationship
  • In-laws and the family business
  • What about family members who AREN'T in the business?

And finally, honour our Finalists at the Family Enterprise of the Year Award (FEYA) celebration!

See the full schedule.

This isn’t your typical online event. It will be hosted on a highly interactive 3D platform specifically designed for you to visit our virtual booths, join Workshops and Community Talks, and have candid conversations — all focused on building stronger families and enterprises.
