Your Partner in Leadership Development


Since the inception of our Executive Programs in 2003, the Telfer Centre for Executive Leadership has become the premiere provider of executive development programs across the National Capital region and we are now extending our reach across Canada and internationally. 

At the Centre, we offer a growing selection of open enrollment programs in which executives and senior leaders can participate with other individuals and groups that are attracted to our programs.   We also customize and tailor leadership programs to meet the needs of organizations that want a common learning experience for their leadership team.

Our client list includes organizations from the healthcare, government, not-for-profit and private sectors and our participants include executives and senior managers in a wide range of roles and circumstances. 

Our instructors and facilitators include experts from the Telfer faculty, leading practitioners from our industry partners, and global thought leaders from partner educational institutions from across North America. 

At Telfer, we believe that we have a unique capability that combines the credibility and depth of an established educational institution together with the agility and client focus of a start-up enterprise.
