About Us

With nearly 15,000 members and a network of 11 chapters across Canada, the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) is the voice of Canadian directors and their boards. As a not-for-profit, member-based organization, ICD delivers best in class governance education, thought leadership resources and opportunities  for members to network within the director community.

The ICD is a founding member of an international collaboration of leading director organizations – the Global Network of Director Institutes. Through this organization, we share expertise in corporate governance and professional director development.

The 2021 ICD National Conference is one of Canada’s most influential business events. The conference provides insights on emerging governance issues in and outside the boardroom to prepare directors to lead their organizations to success.
