2020 Governor General's Canadian Leadership Conference - Invitation to Apply

2020 Governor General's Canadian Leadership Conference

Applications are now being received for the 2020 Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference. 

The experience of a lifetime for future leaders living with a
disability across Canada!

The Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference brings together
Canada’s future leaders from government, business, labour and the community
sector for a remarkable two-week program aimed at increasing their perspectives
on leadership, work, communities and their country. Although each participant
comes from a different background, they all share one thing in common: they are
expected to achieve senior leadership positions within ten years.

Participants will explore the 2020 Conference theme through an opening session
filled with renowned speakers, followed by study tours in every province and
territory, then finally reporting back to the Governor General.

If you identify yourself as a person living with a disability, we invite you to apply. All
members bring to the Conference their own unique views of the reality they know.
In return, everyone gains larger insight into where Canada is now, and how it can
work together to inspire the next generation of decision makers. As a leader living
with a disability, you will share, learn and teach leadership skills with other
Conference members. Together, you will discuss and debate how each of you can
help shape your country in a way that will enable them to meet present needs,
without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own.

There is no conference fee and accommodations will be made to support every
participant's needs and maximize the event's accessibility to everyone.


The Conference opens in Huntsville, Ontario on May 29, 2020 and closes in
Quebec City on June 12, 2020.
