Commonwealth Leaders Dialogue Canada
65 YEARS DEVELOPING LEADERS
Each leader is as unique as the experience the Commonwealth Leaders Dialogue Canada (CLDC) offers.
At the core of every leader our programs help develop is 65 years of proven experiential learning amplifying dialogue across corporate, government, labour and social enterprises to source solutions.
Motivated by his own experiences in Canada; in 1956, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh called for a broad discussion of human challenges in industrial communities to develop solutions applicable across the Commonwealth.
Today, under the auspice of HRH The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, the CLDC Board and a network of alumni, programs are continuous, collaborative and culminate in new skills and perspectives for aspiring leaders.
In June of 2023 The Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conference brought together 250 of the world’s most promising emerging leaders from business, government, labour, and the community sector.
For emerging leaders around the Commonwealth of Nations, CSC2023 in Canada was the learning, networking and personal development experience of a lifetime.
CSC2023 was a great success, and we are grateful to the generous support of our sponsors.
In mid-2025, Canada will host the opening plenary of the Caribbean Canada Leaders Dialogue.
Bringing together 110 leaders from across the business, labour, education and non-profit sectors, this innovative conference will build on longstanding Commonwealth relationships, featuring an opening in Canada, followed by tours across various Caribbean countries.
More details coming soon.
Commonwealth Leaders Dialogue Canada (CLDC) offers unique leadership opportunities through cross-sector, experiential programs. Our focus on critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and technology deployment helps enable leaders to make positive change within local and global communities.
