Welcome to the virtual home of the Canadian Association of Fire Investigators (C.A.F.I.). Our association was formally established in 1980 and is a national organization of professionals who, as a result of their occupation are involved in the investigation or adjustment of fire losses. Our members include the
- Fire Service
- Insurance Industry
- Police Service
- Fire Marshals and Fire Commissioners
- Private Fire Investigators
- Barristers and Solicitors
- other fire investigation professionals
Our organization promotes the thorough investigation of all fires in an effort to improve public safety, reduce loss of life and property damage by providing a forum for professional liaison to share ideas, experiences and information through educational seminars and our publication The Journal.
This association is 30 years old and progressing with over 500 members this year.
Training is an essential element of our association. Chapters plan and conduct training seminars suited to their particular local needs. Seminars are advertised in the Journal and on this website under Training Courses.
For the benefit of our members, our quarterly magazine the Journal outlines topics pertinent to the fire investigation industry. If you would like to become a member, I urge you to look at the Membership page for an application form. Please read our organizations' Code of Ethics.
We always welcome participation & feedback from our members, directors, chapter executives across Canada. Please refer to the Regional Chapter button for the chapter representative near you and watch for chapter activities on our site. We also have Directors in each Province who are available to assist with any questions you may have.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact me at my e-mail address or contact our Executive Secretary Helene Lamadeleine at email@example.com or tel: 613-228-1934.
