We're the Canadian Health Food Association – Canada's largest trade association dedicated to all things natural, organic and wellness. We're building a dynamic and collaborative community, harnessing its collective power, and shaping the industry's future.
Since 1964, our association has grown from a grassroots community of health food pioneers to an organization representing over 1,000 member businesses across Canada.
We connect members to people, products, and ideas. Through our industry-leading events like CHFA NOW - Canada's biggest tradeshow and conference dedicated to natural, organic and wellness to smaller regional events where you can connect with like-minded peers, we make sure your business has the opportunity to network and grow.
Our curated education platform offers relevant insights into regulatory, industry and business issues to give members the tools to stand out and stay ahead.
We're the voice of the industry in Ottawa. From CBD to labelling regulations, we advocate for the issues that matter to the industry and our member's businesses.
We're a strong, collective voice representing manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, distributors, and importers in the natural, organic and wellness industry. We share and learn from one another, celebrate success and empower growth.
Our member community receives exclusive CHFA benefits, including exhibiting at or attending trade events, access to valuable industry insights, educational resources and training, and tools to push your business (and our industry) forward.
Members also benefit from our continued advocacy work for natural health in Canada, and we ensure that voices from across our industry are represented and heard.
"I love being a member of CHFA, the leading trade association in Canada for the natural health and organic products industry. Their shows are fantastic and always offer an incredible audience for me to present my brand. I am very happy to have access to their shows, resources and opportunities. It would not have been possible for me to launch my two brands without CHFA."
