The ECFO Aspire program creates a pathway for professionals and serves as a succession planning tool for departments


Have you observed that your leadership demographic is changing?

Is it time to identify rising stars and future leaders?


Consider the ECFO Aspire program!


 The ECFO Aspire program:

  • allows you to find a pathway for aspiring leaders to identify their key competencies.
  • also allows you to assess other company officers you may be bringing as part of your team.


Are you interested in exploring your potential as a chief fire officer?

Do you want to show your commitment to the field? 


The ECFO Aspire program:

  • allows you to certify your competence in 22 nationally required competencies. 
  • puts you on the pathway for Chief Fire Officer
  • will provide you with advanced standing once you become a chief officer. 
  • allows you to bridge to ECFO candidacy
  • allows your competencies to be recognized across provinces and municipalities

The ECFO Aspire program is designed for those not yet eligible for the ECFO designation. Company Officers and new Fire Chiefs can get ahead by registering as an ECFO Aspire and apply to the ECFO program with remaining competencies as they are achieved.


The heart of the program consists of a number of competencies within seven important themes related to management within the fire service.

The themes are:

  •  Leadership
  •  Human Resources
  • Governance
  • Business Acumen
  • Finance
  • Fire Prevention 
  • Fire Technical
