PFC Events

Each year, we offer a wide variety of events for members and non-member grantmaking organizations to assist with professional development and peer learning opportunities.

In addition, PFC hosts a yearly gathering of leaders in the philanthropic sector from Canada and across the world to exchange ideas, learn from each other and discuss important issues facing our communities.

Past Events

PFC's Annual Conference!

Philanthropy and the Common Good: Renewing Our Practices, Strengthening Our Impact

November 4th – 5th and November 9th – 10th, online

Canadian philanthropy is undergoing a major shift against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic that has changed the way we work, the organizations and people we work with, and what we choose to focus on. As we are slowly moving from emergency response to recovery and rebuilding, the challenges that lie ahead of all of us are complicated and diverse in nature.
