About FBC

About Food Bloggers of Canada (FBC)

FBC was founded in 2011 as a way for Canadian food bloggers to connect, network and find resources to expand their blogging knowledge.  At FBC, we continue to build a community for food bloggers of all kinds to come together to learn, share and get to know one another.

FBC was founded in 2011 by friends and fellow food bloggers Melissa Hartfiel, Ethan Adeland and Mardi Michels. With their backgrounds in food, marketing, event management, teaching, writing, photography and design, they knew they had a unique opportunity to bring together the many talented food bloggers across Canada. You can get to know our whole team better and see our combined love for food!

Food Bloggers of Canada Conference

In 2013, we hosted Canada’s first national food blogging conference, better known as FBC2013, at Hockley Valley Resort in Southern Ontario.  It was a sell out!  Since then we have hosted two more sellout events: FBC2014 in Vancouver and FBC2015 in Montreal.

FBC2016 will be hosted at the Delta Toronto from Oct 21-23, 2016.  If you are interested in receiving our FBC2016 Sponsorship kit when it’s available, please contact our Managing Director of Partnerships, Ethan Adeland.
