CommunityShift is a leadership development program designed exclusively for C-level leaders of Canadian charities and not-for-profit organizations, founded by KPMG Enterprise and the Ivey Business School.

A rigorous annual five-day developmental program for 45 of Canada’s leaders of publicly accountable NPOs, CommunityShift will change the way the participants look at their operations and provide a catalyst for change.

This in-residence program will include representatives from across sectors (e.g. education, health, youth, community service) and will include not-for-profits and charitable organizations.

CommunityShift builds on the success of QuantumShift, a long running, highly successful developmental program focused on the leaders of high growth, entrepreneurial organizations co-founded by KPMG and Ivey. QuantumShift has grown into a national network with over 500 alumni, actively engaged in continued learning and networking activities.
