ELD Canada develops and executes
in-field leadership development programs
for emerging leaders better than anyone else.






Who are we?

We are the Canadian arm of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conferences. Led by our President, HRH The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, we are a global leadership development not for profit.

Our over 5,000 alumni can be found in 52 countries around the world and included in those numbers are many heads of business, labour, and not for profit organisations, as well as governments.

ELD Canada Inc. is a registered Canadian charitable organisation and a Commonwealth Accredited Civil Society Organisation.

What do we do?

We pair emerging leaders from Canada with those from other countries or regions across all economic sectors of labour, business, government, NGO’s and civil society, to participate in two-week in-field Dialogues. The Dialogues develop, peer-to-peer, the critical skill sets required to make leadership decisions in the moment. Participants develop proactive leadership skills that will arm them for the future. We have a long and robust history and have been leading programmes since 1956.

Why are we here?

Future leaders matter and legacy is all you leave behind.

Supporting ELD Canada is your opportunity to make a difference – an investment in the future of Canadian and global leadership. Leaders do not make themselves. Join us and make an impact on the future.
