A board of directors governs Emerging Leaders' Dialogues Canada Inc. The board meets 3 times each year and has 10 directors who provide a balance of diverse experiences, and genders, and are supported by an executive director. Four of the directors are alumni of The Duke of Edinburgh's leadership programs, and 3 founded ELD Canada in 2010.
Each program is then planned and organized by a working committee and a management team. The working committee is comprised of past program alumni and representatives from a variety of sectors and organizations.
