Benefits of Family/Individual Membership in CPF
There are many reasons for joining CPF, the most important being to ensure that FSL education in Canada is all that it can be for your child and for all children in Canada. We appreciate all that our members have done for us, and want to return the favour by offering tools, help, and exclusive members-only resources and events as a way of thanks for joining our family. See below all that CPF has to offer you and your family – besides membership in a strong community of parents and advocates across the country, that is.
Where does your membership fee go? 65% of it is used directly in your community by CPF-SK local chapters, 25% supports CPF-SK’s work at the Branch level and 10% goes to CPF National to partially cover processing costs.

CPF membership is a prerequisite to accessing many of CPF-SK’s programs like the Concours d’art oratoire, summer camps, the 6-9 Grant Program, Mult-Media Kits, and more.
Easy Access to CPF Publications
Each CPF member receives a personal subscription to CPF Magazine and the CPF-SK All Member Communiqué. Keep up to date with CPF events and activities across Canada by joining our national family of supporters.
Many additional CPF publications, including pamphlets, posters, videos, and more, are available to CPF members at discounted rates or, in some cases, free of charge; your membership fee can go a long way to saving you money in the end!
Networking and Advocacy
CPF members have opportunities to network locally, provincially and nationally with others who share their interests through community meetings, skill-building workshops, training sessions for volunteers and parents, and more. Your membership gives CPF a stronger voice to advocate for access to quality FSL education with ministers and administrators at the national and provincial levels and with school boards in your community.
