Program description - January 2024

Community Service Organizations in Canada continue to evolve to meet the diverse and changing needs within our communities. Succession planning is a key requirement for most organizations, creating a demand for skilled managers in the not-for-profit sector. This Ontario College Graduate Certificate Program is uniquely designed for emerging managers in the not-for-profit sector. Graduates attain knowledge and skills not covered in other management programs, setting them apart from others applying for similar jobs. For those with experience in the field of community services, this program will provide you with the skills that may lead to a promotion or enhance your abilities in your management role. You will have the opportunity to gain skills in community development and engagement, program design and evaluation, and project management. Human resources, financial management, principles of management, as well as sponsorship and fundraising will also be addressed in the context of not-for-profit leadership. In this program, you will enhance your understanding of community-based social policy and public administration and gain perspectives on social, cultural and political issues with a focus on equity, inclusion and diversity. Through a variety of projects, case studies, presentations and interactive learning opportunities, you will apply the skills required to be a supervisor, manager and or leader. You will produce individual work, as well as work in groups with a diverse cohort of students who bring a wide breadth of experience to the classroom. This graduate program includes a work placement experience allowing you to gain practical experience to be “job ready” for government, community-based, and or social service-based organizations.
