After over a decade of service, and fulfilling the role of President and CEO since 2017, Toby Fyfe announces that he will be leaving the Institute on Governance in January 2022.
During his tenure, he rebuilt the organization and the team to focus on the challenges facing today’s democratic public institutions. Toby led the organisation through the COVID-19 pandemic, adapting business lines and adjusting the organisation for a strong fiscal year.
Before assuming the role of President, Toby spent five years building the IOG Learning Lab into a business enterprise where he developed, taught and led leadership programs for public servants across Canada and abroad.
He expressed his appreciation to IOG staff saying: “I am honoured to have worked with such a great team. Together, we have been through a lot and accomplished even more. I am especially proud of the resilience the IOG team showed in adapting to the global pandemic while quickly embracing digital technologies to deliver learning and advisory programs.”
Following a rich career spanning the CBC, consulting, and the Government of Canada, Toby plans to continue exploring the challenges facing public institutions in the 21st century through teaching, writing, research and facilitation. He looks forward to sharing his experience in change management with organizations of all sizes and across sectors.
Aurele Theriault, chair of the IOG Board of Directors, thanked Toby for his contribution to the organization. He announced that Laura Edgar, Vice-President Board and Organizational Governance, will be taking over as Interim President while a search firm is engaged to find a successor.
