Canadian Practice Firms Network: Welcome!

The first practice firm to emerge outside the European soil was founded in Quebec City in 1995: Artmérik International.

In the months and years that followed, several other practice firms have sprung up across Quebec and Canada, making it necessary to come together in a network.

In 1998, the Canadian Practice Firms Network (CPFN) was founded.

In 2015, there are 30 members: 22 in the employability sector whose clientele is job seekers and 8 pedagogical practice firms in colleges and university, for students.

The CPFN is a member of EUROPEN-PEN International, the worldwide practice enterprises network of 42 member countries.

The CPFN is officially recognized by Emploi-Québec as an employability partner, as signed in the «Protocol of recognition between Emploi-Québec and its employability partners».
