About Us



Canadian Federation for Citizenship

was established during Canada's 

150th Anniversary of Confederation.  

It aims to engage citizens of Canada 

to develop homegrown leadership 

through active citizenship.



Founded by Jenny Gulamani-Abdulla, JD and  Ghalib Abdulla, CPA  during Canada's Sesquicentennial, CFC works to ensure that all residents of Canada are embraced, included and respected to participate in  Canada’s progress. 



Established in 2017, our Board of Directors 

are appointed for three year terms and

 serve without remuneration. They come from diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
