International Association of Facilitators

The mission of the IAF is to promote, support and advance the art and practice of professional facilitation.

Facilitation is a profession rapidly taking its unique place alongside those of consulting and training. The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) was formed by a group of professionals desiring an avenue for interchange, professional development, trend analysis and peer networking. Since its beginnings in 1994, the IAF has grown to over 1200 members in more than 63 countries. IAF members work in government, non-profit, educational, community, and corporate environments and hold positions as consultants, teachers, in-house facilitators, negotiators, organisational specialists, coaches, and more.

As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 741,000 residents and more than 54,000 businesses, including more than 60 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focusing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money and maintaining infrastructure.
