As a Governance Professional, it is important that you are equipped with the latest and most important tools and best practices in governance. Your effectiveness and your success is directly related to the effectiveness of your board and your organization. New regulations, stakeholder and market pressures continue to evolve relentlessly, so it is critical that you can invest in your professional development and stay on top of key changes, new trends and best practices. 

It is with this in mind that we would encourage you to apply for the GPC Education Program (GPC-EP) - Governance in Practice, and to obtain your designation as a GPC.D. GPC-EP is the only practical certification course available for governance professionals in Canada.

"While formal education abounds for directors in Canada, there are no programs that focus on the unique and practical education needs of the professionals who support boards and governance processes in Canadian organizations. This is long overdue. "  says Lynn Beauregard, President, Governance Professionals of Canada.

The GPC-EP, is a formal education program tailored to governance professionals and is based on providing the highest standard in practical governance. Launched in August of this year, enrollment is now open. Module 1 will be delivered in November of 2017 and modules 2 and 3 in the spring of 2018.

The Governance Professionals of Canada Education Program (GPC-EP) is designed to:

  • Respond to the demand to provide education tailored to the unique needs of professionals working in governance
  • Set a standard and new bar for the practice and the profession of governance in Canada
  • Create good governance practices across all sectors and industries

The GPC-EP is designed to enhance the existing skills of governance professionals of all levels, and operating in a governance role, whether in public, private, not-for-profit or governmental organizations such as in: legal, compliance, ethics, stakeholder relations, board and committee support, and more.  

Individuals new to these roles, as well as seasoned professionals, will find benefit in the GPC-EP as it will not only provide them with the latest best practices, skills and tools in governance, but will also enhance the standard of their profession and further their career.

Upon completion of the program, and passing the final examination, program participants will receive the Governance Professionals of Canada Designation: GPC.D.
