Welcome City Administrators


The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs welcomes City Administrators to the CAFC website.


We have a number of important offerings to our country’s municipalities of which we would like you to be aware. We hope that you will support your municipality’s Fire Chiefs and company officers in joining their national association. Here are some of our key offerings:


Recognizing excellence:

  • Every year, the CAFC in collaboration with Fire Underwriters Survey offers a Fire Chief of the Year Award for Volunteer and Career Chiefs. Use this as an opportunity to showcase your chief and community.

Identifying and exchanging best practices: 

  • Do you ever wonder how other municipalities are dealing with the fire related issues of the day? Membership in the CAFC provides opportunity to exchange best practices nationally and are developing an international best practices committee.
  • We also have groups that deal with topics from building codes to interoperability, rail safety to diversity and inclusion and diversity.
  • Our national fire information database provides key data points and a roster of researchers that members can search through.


Recruiting the best and the brightest:

Benchmarking talent:

  •  Our Executive Chief Fire Officer (ECFO) program lays out the competencies that are agreed upon nationally and that can help your municipality be assured of the best possible standards of practice.

Providing education and networking:

  • Want to provide cost effective tools for information sharing and education. Members have access to a discount for Fire Rescue Canada, our annual conference. This year’s conference is September 13-16 in Calgary.  
  • We also have a free  webinar series for members. Webinars are 11:30-12:30 EST but are also recorded. Non members can partake for $50.00 a session. 

Advancing key causes in Ottawa:

  • The Fire Sector is complex and constantly evolving, the CAFC is on hand to advance key issues with the federal government and provide updates as to what is happening.
  • We also advocate for appropriate resourcing for fire departments in our municipalities. Take a look at our submissions.
  • Please visit our operating plan for more!


Mathematics of membership:


The CAFC membership for individual members is set at a price deliberately intended to ensure a return on investment for municipalities. Consider that our yearly membership of $280 for individual chiefs and $140.00 for company officers comes not only with the benefits above, but over $600 in savings when we consider the $100.00 Fire Rescue Canada discount for members and the $550 in savings for webinar costs. This is in addition to education, networking, advocacy, data and best practices. 


How can you get your chief to join?
