CAFP organizes a number of activities every year, which seek to raise funds for its numerous programs or to help former parliamentarians stay connected with one another. Most activities are held on an annual basis.
Study tours are organized based on the destination's most temperate season or to coincide with specific events.
From time to time, CAFP also organizes conferences on issues of importance to parliamentary democracy, governance and the interests of both current and former parliamentarians. In 2010, CAFP partnered with the Public Policy Forum to organize Question Question Period to discuss ways of improving the tenor and tone of debate in Canada’s Parliament.
