Build the leadership community

Employers, nominate the promising employees reporting to you for the Aspiring Directors Program. Employees with the potential to reach the executive level within two years, selected through your department's internal talent management process, will get the tools they need to prepare for leadership.

The Executive Leadership Development Programs, delivered in partnership with the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer, offer cohorts at two levels: EX-1 to EX-3 and EX-4 to EX-5.

At the EX-1 to EX-3 level, the program allows participants to explore their leadership role in translating vision into action—enabling innovation, fostering collaboration and delivering results for Canadians.

At the EX-4 to EX-5 level, meanwhile, the program participants deepen their personal leadership in a trusted and well-integrated community of their peers, building a global mindset to help them set a strategic direction and vision for their organizations.

The future is bright, the future is now!
