  • “We joined the CFFB many years ago because we are small family business owners and thus appreciate the challenges and opportunities that other CFFB members face every day. We are continually touched by the stories we hear from CFFB members in personal interactions around the table and also the family business stories told at each event. As active members, we’re honoured to serve members and help them strengthen the financial tools and structures in and around their family businesses.”
