The Canadian Personal Chef Association (CPCA) has operated since the fall of 1999 to train and support the personal chef industry in Canada.
During the past ten years, almost 500 personal chefs from coast to coast have started their businesses using our widely-recognized and respected training system.
Our standards are high. Members must complete a comprehensive training program, carry liability insurance, and operate according to a Code of Ethics. CPCA Personal Chefs must abide by Health and Safety Regulations and do not cook in their own homes. Certified members must upgrade their education on an annual basis in order to stay current, even after completing a rigourous two-year certification process.
The Canadian Personal Chef Association's mandate is to promote the personal cheffing industry as a quality and healthy in-home cooking service, and its members as leaders in their field.
