Supporting Young Chefs and Sommeliers

Across Canada!




Canada has had a proud history of Gold Medallists in recent years at the Chaine des Rôtisseurs International Competitions. Our professional Chefs and Sommeliers have an unmatched record in mentoring and nurturing our young talent, but it takes more than that. The Chaine Canada Foundation helps take Canada's brightest young chefs and sommeliers to new heights.


Keeping Canada at the Forefront of Culinary Achievement


There is no better place to encourage and support young culinary professionals than right at the beginning of their journey. The Chaîne Canada Foundation is proud to support the National and International Jeune (Young) Chefs Rôtisseurs and Sommeliers competitions and to match la Chaine local Bailliage (Chapter) grants for Canadian culinary institute scholarships awarded to deserving young chefs and sommeliers across the nation. Recent scholarships over the past few years have been awarded to SAIT (Calgary); Camosun College (Victoria); Red River Community College (Winnipeg); Nova Scotia Community College; and NAIT (Edmonton).


The Chaine Canada Foundation also funds sending Canadian National Competition winners to both of the International Jeunes Chefs Rôtisseurs and Jeunes Sommelier competitions. We continue to look for new and innovative approaches to support our finest and our best.


Investing in Young Canadian Talent


With the Chaîne Canada Foundation, the Canadian National Bailliage offers Chaîne members (and other interested parties) the opportunity to empower Canada’s young culinary frontrunners with experiences of true culinary kinship – the cornerstone of la Chaîne.
