About Leading Change Canada

Leading Change is a Canada-wide movement for us, by us — a group of young environmental leaders and sustainability professionals working to accelerate action on environmental, social, and economic issues that are critical to attaining a sustainable future for Canada and the world.
We bring together sustainability and innovation leaders, aged 19-35 from across Canada, to build skills, form partnerships, and take action in the following areas:

  • Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience (including GHG Reduction)
  • Connected & Thriving Communities
  • Entrepreneurship & Innovation
  • Commercialization & Scalability

Leading Change is a volunteer partnership led by Connecting Environmental Professionals (CEP) Canada, a not-for-profit network of young leaders across Canada with chapters in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Ottawa. Strategy and advisory support is provided by the Delphi Group, a Canadian leader in strategic sustainability consulting, providing innovative solutions in climate change and corporate sustainability.

Applications are now open for five volunteer spots at the next Leading Change Forum, taking place on and around March 13, 2018 in Vancouver, BC. Applicants must be between 19-35 years of age at the time of the forum.
