Work for
a Better
World

We believe resilient organizations and people have the capacity to lead Canada’s transition to a sustainable and equitable economy. We’re living in a period of unprecedented technological, social, and environmental change. These disruptions represent an enormous opportunity for transition to achieve social justice, protect the planet, and power a green economy.

Canada needs professionals across organizations and sectors who can navigate and accelerate the transition. Current academic solutions have fallen short in breadth, scale, and speed to develop capabilities in people eager to work on these opportunities.

We promote the adoption of capacities, practices and mindsets of Transition Leadership across the Canadian economy. Discover our agile educational pathways to new possibilities, helping you solve the problems of today for a better tomorrow.

The Transition to a sustainable and equitable economy is ripe with opportunities for people at every stage of their career path. Our programs and free content are designed to provide accessible opportunities to the diverse community of ambitious professionals motivated to work for a better world.

Impact is achieved through collaboration and community participation.

We are building a movement and nurturing the community of Transition Leaders in Canada with funders, partners, and network who are leading the transition.
