Brand Partnerships

As our industry continues to recover and rebuild, we want to thank our valued partners for your ongoing support of our national culinary community. It has been a challenging time but we are resilient and confident that our members and our industry are coming together to create a successful future.

With that in mind, we are excited to present our 2021 Partnership Opportunities. We are poised to soon be entering the "next normal" phase, but are also very aware that provincial health and safety protocols will change the look of in-person gatherings for the foreseeable future. As such, we are incorporating the following deliverables into our partnership offerings:

  • Monthly Digital Newsletter - "HOT OFF THE GRILL" - including a Partner Highlights section (for articles, video links, etc)
  • Member Benefits section of website - for members to easily access and engage with partners and take advantage of partner offers
  • Ongoing access to members virtually (regular monthly/bi-monthly branch and regional meetings; customized virtual education)
  • Enhanced social media presence
  • "IN THE FIELD" digital collaboration with Sysco Virtual Kitchens
  • National media exposure with CRFN magazine (print) and RestoBiz (digital)

After a 2 year hiatus, our signature annual national conference - will be re-imagined and back better than ever in June 2022 (hosted in Saskatoon, SK). In the meantime, we are exploring opportunities to engage virtually in Fall 2021.
