Experienced Leadership

Experienced Professional Leadership Program

This program, which leads to the Chartered designation, is intended for a limited group of senior and emerging leaders in Canada’s housing sector and involves additional application vetting. Candidates for this program are typically recognized as innovators and leaders in the housing sector. They tend to hold senior positions in organizations and bring many years of experience to the program. The program will also be suitable for high potential professionals preparing to move into senior leader­ship roles.

This program has the same requirements as the Experienced Professional Route (i.e. writing assignment and interview) but is supplemented by in-person learning and networking with peers. Participants in this program also have access to online resources and a tutor.

The in-person learning is designed to enhance the strategic and orga­nizational leadership skills of participants, focusing on best practices within a broad, multi-disciplinary curriculum. Taking place over two, two-day sessions (four full days), topics include transformational change management, strategic leadership, performance measure­ment, fostering innovation and collaborative relationships.


The cost for the Experienced Professional Leadership Program is $3,800 plus applicable taxes. You must be a member of CIH Canada to be eligible for this program.


The Experienced Leadership Program will be launching in 2016 with in-person learning sessions taking place in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017. If you are interested or would like more information, please let us know!
