Introduction and Premise

Capacity Canada has carefully designed a program focused on governance processes, rich interactivity with participants and relevance of content. Each session has been designed for:

  • Ease of application to ensure maximum impact
  • High interaction in a participative format
  • Focus on improved Board performance
  • With an incredible renowned faculty

Distinct features of Capacity Canada BootCamps

  • Limited to 80 organizations
  • Both the CEO/ED and Board Chair participate
  • Pre and Post Boot Camp surveys determine adaptive course content
  • CEO/ED and Board Chair commit to completing a project to address governance improvement
  • Includes a half-day follow-up session to provide coaching on project implementation
  • Manulife Governance Excellence Award (includes a $5,000 donation to the selected registered charity)

Program Overview

Capacity Canada’s governance program design is intended to tackle those issues which have the greatest impact on overall board effectiveness and good governance.

Every topic is accompanied by insights into practical and relevant application through the use of a case study approach. Sessions are supplemented with break-out discussions to tackle issues and challenges they are encountering in their organization. This format will help participants identify solutions and improve overall board performance.

Each participant leaves the program with a plan for tackling opportunities for governance improvement. A half-day follow-up session will occur approximately three months after the core program. This check-up will provide the opportunity for feedback on changes implemented and further governance coaching specific to individual organizational needs.


Expert Faculty

Capacity Canada’s BootCamp faculty are recognized as leading experts in their field, empowering boards and non-profit leaders to further social innovation. Faculty contains a mix of university researchers and governance professionals well known to the non-profit community.

Each session is led by a topic expert who combines leading-edge theory with first-hand knowledge and experience applying concepts that have direct and transformational impact on board performance.


Reinforced Learning through CapacityGO

Capacity Canada has partnered with Axonify to build an innovative board governance knowledge platform (CapacityGO) that is well-beyond traditional e-learning and webinars. As an added value, all BootCamp alumni will be granted access to CapacityGO (a $399 value) upon BootCamp completion. By combining the BootCamp experience, learning platform and follow-up session, it ensures real impact to Boards and tremendous value to the organizations they serve.


Manulife Governance Excellence Award

A distinct feature of Capacity Canada’s BootCamp is the awarding of the Manulife Governance Excellence Award. This award, presented at the follow-up session held three months post-BootCamp, recognizes excellence and improvement demonstrated by one BootCamp participating Board. In addition to recognition of their achievement, the selected charitable organization will receive a $5000 Donation for the board to use as they choose.
