Securefact recently sponsored and attended the Canadian Financing and Leasing Association (CFLA) Annual Conference this past September. The 2016 event was a big success and congratulations to David Powell, President & Chief Executive Officer and the CFLA team!

If you lease equipment and/or automobiles or provide products and services to this industry the CLFA is a key association you need to join. This organization has their pulse on where the industry has been and where it is heading. Their annual conference is a great place to learn, network and engage with professionals in the industry and we encourage you to read the 2015-16 annual report for an update on the Canadian market, their advocacy work and a breakdown of the membership. In addition, there are photos from the event and CFLA members can access videos and presentations as well.

To those members who attended our peer networking dinner at Peller Estates thank you! We look forward to continuing the conversation in the coming months.
