Canadian Future Achievers (CFA) Program
The Canadian Future Achievers Leadership Program, founded in 2008 by Professors Cynthia and Yves Bled, aims to encourage and reward minority youths, between the ages of 9-16 years, who demonstrate potential for positive self-fulfillment and who are committed to Canada’s sustenance and development. The program is specifically geared towards minority youths of First Nations, Inuit and Caribbean ancestry.
