We build leaders.  Leaders build community.

Welcome to Leadership Saskatoon

Welcome to

Leadership Saskatoon


  • Leading is a practice not necessarily linked to a formal title or position.
  • Leading is about self-development and living your values with integrity.
  • Leading is about inspiring, supporting, challenging and encouraging team members.
  • Learning and practicing leadership skills strengthens and connects individuals across all sectors.
  • Participating in our program transforms people.

We Develop Leaders. Leaders Build Community.

The Leadership Saskatoon Program has been called life-changing by many of our graduates. It’s a full immersion into your personal development as a leader, and you won’t look at yourself or our community in the same way afterwards.

You will:

  • Engage in over 93 hours of immersive leadership training delivered by a team of highly skilled facilitators and coaches.
  • Learn with a diverse cohort of leaders from across the community and join an alumni network of over 500 graduates.
  • Be matched with a leader who will serve as your mentor during the program.
  • Put your leadership learning into practice by participating on a “learning team” to explore a community issue you are passionate about.
  • Receive a certificate of participation from Leadership Saskatoon and University of Saskatchewan upon completion on the program.

Leadership can be learned. Our redesigned curriculum focuses on skills you can apply right away. Are you ready for the challenge?

Praise from Graduates and Businesses

“Leadership Saskatoon gives you the opportunity to deeply reflect on your current leadership path, gain essential tools to develop professionally, and build a network with other leaders. Thank-you for offering a very well organized and highly professional opportunity for leaders in our community!”


Jess Hamm, Saskatchewan Intercultural Association

“Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Canada Ltd.’s (MHPSC) participation in the Leadership Saskatoon Program began in 2010 when we sponsored one of our staff to participate in the program. Their growth as a leader in the community and as a leader in our organization exceeded our expectations and subsequently five more MHPSC staff were sponsored to participate in the program over the next several years. 

What the company gained through their participation in the program was significant growth in their competencies for team leadership, strategic problem solving, and personal effectiveness.”


Tom KishchukPresident & CEO (2006-2015) of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Canada Ltd

The diversity of the candidates within the program supports the goal of leadership growth, regardless of what business background you come from. Leading people is the common denominator and our staff graduate being better leaders.”
