The Canadian Finance & Leasing Association (CFLA) is the only voice of the asset-based financing, equipment, and vehicle leasing industry in Canada. The Association supports, informs, and advocates for members to advance our industry.


For a vibrant asset-based finance and leasing industry in Canada

The CFLA’s overarching advocacy goal is to safeguard the long-term viability of the Canadian asset-based financing, vehicle, and equipment leasing industry in all its diversity.

Proactive advocacy on all levels of government

The CFLA proactively advocates to key stakeholders (governments, media, other associations, finance industry, and business audience) to promote the relevance and economic impact of our sector and to influence legislation and regulation.

The Association advocates on behalf of the asset-based industry primarily on the federal and provincial levels, and, where appropriate, also on the municipal and international levels.

Issues that matter to your business

The CFLA has been working on several issues critical to our industry and is in constant dialogue with ministers/deputy ministers, members of parliament, and high-level civil servants on the federal and provincial levels.

The Association also organizes annual Hill Days in Ottawa, where we talk to MPs from all parties and senior civil servants to raise the profile of our industry and emphasize the important role the asset-based finance and leasing industry plays for the Canadian economy.
