The Conference Board of Canada

The Conference Board of Canada

We are a not-for-profit Canadian organization that takes a business-like approach to its operations. Objective and non-partisan. We do not lobby for specific interests. Funded exclusively through the fees we charge for services to the private and public sectors.

Experts in running conferences but also at conducting, publishing and disseminating research, helping people network, developing individual leadership skills and building organizational capacity.

Specialists in economic trends, as well as organizational performance and public policy issues.

Not a government department or agency, although we are often hired to provide services for all levels of government.

Independent from, but affiliated with, The Conference Board, Inc. of New York, which serves some 2,500 companies in 60 nations and has offices in Brussels and Hong Kong.

Our Vision: The Conference Board will be recognized as Canada’s most influential, independent source of insights for leaders.

Our Mission: The Conference Board builds leadership capacity for a better Canada by creating and sharing insights on economic trends, public policy and organizational performance.
