The Canadian Friends of Finland (CFF) was founded in 1982 by a group of Finnish Canadian volunteers led by Professor Varpu Lindstrom of York University. The mandate of the CFF is to develop and promote friendly relations and cultural and educational connections between Canadians and Finns. Since its founding in Toronto, the CFF has established active branches in Montreal, Ottawa, and Vancouver. In 1990 the CFF established the CFF Education Foundation (CFFEF) to support the Finnish Studies Program at the University of Toronto.
