Family Business Network (FBN) Canada
Why Join Family Business Network Canada?
Building a legacy gets easier when multi-generational enterprising families can learn from the insightful experiences of their peers and global experts.
FBN Canada is the Canadian chapter of Family Business Network International, the world’s leading organization for family enterprises. Across Canada and over 60 countries, our community connects you to more than 16,000 active family business members with the opportunity to share stories and ideas with people worldwide who truly understand your reality.
The FBN community has provided my family with incredible learning opportunities and the pleasure of connecting with business families from around the world. Hearing their stories inspires us to pursue more creative solutions and not just accept the status quo.
Enjoy everything that membership has to offer…
Enhance your family learning journey
The Family Enterprise Foundation resources empower FBN families as learning, pro-active and stronger family units. Videos, learning paths, online courses, and interactive activities help families break down their complex dynamics into clear solutions.
Engage with Canadian, multi-generational business families
Our virtual and in-person gatherings promote a safe space for enterprising families across Canada to discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that arise when transitioning beyond the second generation.
Attend exclusive global events
Annually, FBN organizes outstanding Global Summits and about 700 activities across the network. These events are highly diverse opportunities to connect with business family members from around the world.
Your family as a force for good
Delivered by FBN and the United Nations, Family Business for Sustainable Development (FBSD) is an initiative that offers a roadmap for enterprising families to adopt a more purpose driven business model that supports inclusive growth and prosperity for all.
Ready to lead
If you’re under 40, you can join our dynamic NxG Community and develop the skills you’ll need as the future leader of your family business. Globally, FBN gathers over 6,000 NxG and young entrepreneurs eager to exchange ideas.
A trusted environment where business leaders between 35 and 55 years old can focus on their personal growth, while nurturing their families and businesses. Often accountable, but not fully in power yet, they strive to be role models both for their family and their business.
Connect with an international community
Get access to FBN Xchange — the global member portal with a directory to help you start conversations with business families from over 60 countries.
Enjoy the full FEX experience
Your FBN Canada membership includes all of the FEX Family benefits.
If you already have a FEX Family Membership and would like to join FBN Canada, your FEX fees can be pro-rated to cover part of the FBN Canada membership fee.
Family Business Network Canada is a community for enterprising families that will allow them to connect with other like-minded peers and really share their experiences.
