Release of landmark study - Board Governance Practices in the Voluntary Sector

The findings of a landmark study of the governance practices of Canada's non profit boards carried out by Strategic Leverage Partners Inc., in partnership with the Centre for Voluntary Sector Research and Development, will be released on April 26th. The report includes the results of an extensive survey as well as numerous interviews with Canadian nonprofit board governance leaders and discussions with both board members and senior executives of Canadian non-profit organizations. It identifies the major challenges facing Canada's non-profit boards and goes a step further in building an inventory of successful practices used by today's boards to address these challenges.

The report will be launched at an Institute of Corporate Directors breakfast in Toronto on April 26th, after which it will be available from the Strategic Leverage Partners website at For information on the ICD breakfast, please visit (events).
