The Chess Federation of Canada (CFC), founded in 1872, is a non-profit corporation whose mandate is to promote and encourage the knowledge, study and play of the game of chess in Canada.

The Chess Federation of Canada is the governing body for chess in Canada. The CFC is affiliated with the World Chess Federation (FIDE) and were in fact one of its founding members.

The CFC organizes National Championships (Canadian Closed, Canadian Women’s Closed, Canadian Junior and Canadian Youth Chess Championships), and raises funds for the winners to go on to the respective World Championships. In addition, the CFC has sent a team to FIDE's Chess Olympiad each time it has been held (every second year) since 1964.
