FP Canada Fellow Distinction

The FP Canada Fellow distinction formally recognizes individuals who have helped advance FP Canada's purpose and CFP® professional standards, and who have embodied these standards. Examples of contributions from previous FP Canada Fellow recipients have included:

  • Long-standing and exemplary service through volunteerism that advances FP Canada's purpose
  • Promotion of financial planning and Certified Financial Planner® certification as the profession of choice to the next generation
  • Significant involvement in the development of practice standards or the examinations development process
  • Direct or broad support of the CFP designation within the financial planning industry
  • Extensive promotion of financial planning and CFP certification to Canadians on a grassroots level

The Recognition and Awards Committee applies strict criteria and a stringent process for evaluating nominees for this distinction. As a result, the FP Canada Fellow distinction may not be awarded every year.


Nomination criteria and guidelines for the FP Canada Fellow distinction are posted in May each year.
