“Just this year I’ve met another couple of people that I feel that I could call to ask a question about certain things that I’m facing in my role as CFO at the company that I work for.”

Toronto Chapter
FEI Canada Member Since 2012

Membership delivers targeted professional development.

“After joining FEI Canada in February of 2012, I soon after attended my first chapter event, and was impressed by the topic, speaker, and level professionalism I encountered. I had attended numerous competing financial association events in the past, which fell short of my expectations, however the highly targeted nature of the financial topics covered, and my ability to network with like-minded professionals, is what made FEI Canada stand out as an organization that understood my need for professional development.

I feel proud to be part of FEI Canada and look forward to being a member for years to come.”

Kay Brekken
Chief Financial Officer, First Capital Realty
Toronto Chapter
FEI Canada Member Since 2003

Membership opens the door to local and national networks.

“When I first became a CFO I sought out membership in FEI Canada to connect with other CFOs, and have the advantage of learning from their experience and sharing my own. I gradually became increasingly involved as a volunteer with the Toronto Chapter board, working with colleagues to build a relevant and exciting organization, and widening my network all the while. Our chapter works diligently to attract thought leaders and high profile speakers to our chapter events to ensure our members are well informed on topics that matter.

I’ve developed a strong local network as well as a national network of friends and colleagues by attending the annual FEI Canada Conference. In addition to top-notch keynote speakers and great technical sessions, the conference is a great social event and I always enjoy reconnecting with friends at the Gala dinner and the golf tournament. FEI Canada remains the dynamic organization it was when I first joined in 1997.”

Carl Gauvreau
Chief Financial Officer, KDC
Quebec Chapter
FEI Canada Member Since 2003

Membership expands your network across North America.

“When I was transferred to New York 10 years ago, I quickly built my network through FEI Canada.  Returning to Quebec, I was able to re-establish my network through the Quebec Chapter and expand it across Canada by becoming more deeply involved as a volunteer on the national board. My network of contacts (and friends) is constantly growing through FEI Canada. FEI Canada is a major contributor to my professional development allowing me to meet my CPD requirements with training sessions and conferences focused on the financial executive role.

Every aspect of FEI Canada is entirely driven by members for members, and that quality distinguishes it from every other organization out there.”

Leah Halpenny
Vice President, Finance & Administration, Green & Spiegel LLP

Membership expands horizons.

“Through FEI Canada I’ve had the opportunity to gain valuable board experience and develop skills outside of the realm of finance, including public speaking. I’ve met an incredible array of people across all industries, and earned all my Continuing Professional Development credits through FEI Canada.”
