The CFCA (Canadian Football Coaches Association) is a non-profit organization that represents football coaches at all levels in Canada. It was founded in 1967 and has over 3,000 members. The CFCA's mission is to "promote and develop the game of football in Canada".
The CFCA was founded in 1967 by a group of football coaches who were concerned about the lack of coaching resources and development opportunities available to coaches in Canada. The CFCA's first president was Bob Elliott, who was also the head coach of the University of Toronto football team.
The CFCA has grown significantly since its inception. In 1967, it had only 100 members. Today, it has over 3,000 members from all over Canada. The CFCA also has a number of provincial and regional chapters.
The CFCA provides a variety of activities and resources for its members, including:
