About Us

The Calgary Chapter is a not-for-profit, professional organization of personal and business coaches

We are the local chapter of The International Coach Federation, the largest worldwide resource for business and personal coaches, that exists to Build, Support and Preserve the integrity of the coaching profession. We are operated by a volunteer Board of Directors.

You can expect us to:

  • Align with ICF Global, especially the Code of Ethics

  • Provide opportunities to network and develop relationships

  • Identify resources used to be a better coach

  • Offer educational opportunities which develop professional knowledge and skills

  • Engage in outreach activities which provide a service and expand the community’s awareness of the coaching profession

  • Provide a forum where members can discuss issues of professional concern

  • Provide the opportunity for members to collaborate in providing resources and solutions to their clients (e.g., Communities of Practice)

  • Provide a credible source of information and resources for the coaching profession

  • Provide a registry for our member coaches

  • Help clients find a coach


While we have regular programming throughout the year, by far our hallmark event has become our annual Day With The Masters, usually held in October.
