Current Board of Directors

Message From The Board Chair

The Laurier Institution aims to shift from solutions that meet the needs of the few to those that meet the needs of the many. We draw from our differences and actively involve everyone’s ideas, knowledge, lived experiences, and perspectives to foster safe and thriving communities.

As a non-profit, non-partisan organization operating from Vancouver, BC on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, we envision a world where diversity is valued and everyone is included.

We work with partners to ignite collaboration, deepen shared learning, and inspire action around equity, diversity and inclusion. More than 30 years after local changemakers founded The Laurier Institution as a national charity in 1989, we continue to be inspired by our members, former and current directors and staff, and by generous donors, sponsors and project-based funders. We welcome inquiries about potential collaborations and other opportunities aligned with our mission and values.
