How to assign an Alternate Profile Manager in My CFIA
Profile Managers and Alternate Profile Managers are authorized by the Profile Authority to create and manage My CFIA profiles, invite other users, and conduct business online with the CFIA on behalf of a business. CFIA strongly recommends that all My CFIA party profiles have an Alternate Profile Manager in case the Profile Manager leaves the company, or is out of the office due to vacation or illness. If your Profile Manager has left the company and you do not already have an Alternate Profile Manager, you must call 1-800-442-CFIA (2342) to have your profile re-validated.
To assign an Alternate Profile Manager, sign in to My CFIA and make sure the party that you want to assign an Alternate Profile Manager for is selected by clicking the white drop down box under Party Administration, clicking on the proper party and clicking Select.
To assign or update your alternate profile manager, click on Manage Party.
Your Party Profile Overview will be displayed. Scroll down and select the Mandatory Party Contacts.
The Mandatory Party Contacts field will drop down to show your profile's Principal Contacts. From this list select the Edit hyperlink to the right of the Alternate Profile Manager as shown below.
The page will load to display the Manage Party – Alternate Profile Manager screen. If your profile has an existing Alternate Profile Manager the information will appear here. To assign a new Alternate Profile Manager, enter an email as shown below.
Note: Your profile can only have one Alternate Profile Manager at a time, if you already have an Alternate Profile Manager, they will be replaced by the new invited profile.
After clicking Invite, an expiration date will appear. Your newly invited Alternate Profile Manager will have until that date to accept your request. If they do not accept by the expiration date, you will need to repeat these steps. If you wish to cancel your invite you can do so by selecting Cancel Invite displayed below the expiration date.
Once you've sent an invite, an email with a code, as shown in the red box below, will be sent to the email address you provided.
