Welcome To The Freelancers Association!

The Hamilton Freelancers Association (HFA) was founded in November 2013 by freelancing experts, Chad Fullerton (@chad_fullerton) and Brian Hogg (@brianhogg).

Our goal is to connect freelancers in the Hamilton area with each other, while providing valued workshops and attracting expert guest speakers to monthly events. By providing information on starting your own freelancing business, and connecting with others who are doing the same, we hope to spark collaborations and entrepreneurship within Hamilton’s young professionals and the community at large.

The Hamilton Freelancers Association currently has over 450+ registered members on our Meetup group, and continues to grow each month. We host monthly Freelancer Meetup networking events at 20 Augusta Street. Click here to learn more.
