Realize Change Conference


Celebrating over 20 years of providing services to build a stronger social impact sector.


  • Today’s impact-driven organizations are not only working to solve an even greater number of social issues, but we are also facing a generational shift. With our constantly evolving communities, innovation has become the solution to unleashing unprecedented change in how non-profits, governments and businesses respond to community, environmental and social needs.

    Realize Change: Leadership in an Age of Disruption will explore how leaders of the impact sector can build workplaces that foster innovative solutions to cataclysmic change and support future leaders in the sector. This conference will take participants on an interactive, immersive journey with thought leaders from across Canada.

    Realize Change: Leadership in an Age of Disruption is the conference for:

    • Non-profit, social enterprise leaders, co-ops and mutuals, and B Corporations
    • Government policy makers
    • Academics and thought leaders
    • Anyone interested in driving social change through innovation
