We connect Canadian gastronomes, enthusiasts, connoisseurs, hoteliers, restaurateurs, executive chefs and sommeliers in 11 Bailliages (Chapters) across our beautiful country. We gather to embrace the future of fine dining while treasuring the best of tradition. The cornerstone of each la Chane experience? Fun, camaraderie, and a shared passion for the culinary arts.
A proud history of Culinary Kinship
First established in 1248, la Chaîne is the longest-standing dining guild in the world. The Canadian Chapter was inaugurated in Montreal in 1960 with additional Chapters now established in 10 other cities including Victoria, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Quebec City, Saint John and Halifax. The Canadian Chapter continues to grow and expects to soon open new Chapters in parts of the country not currently served.
We are passionate about honouring the traditions of the guild but in a contemporary, evolving context. In support of Canada’s bright culinary future, we continue to embrace technological advances and innovations in gastronomy.
