The Directors Education Program (DEP) was jointly developed by The Institute of Corporate Directors and The Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto to review governance expectations and promote best practices in the boardroom.  The highly interactive 12-day program incorporates roundtable discussion, case studies and on-point insights from leading academic thinkers, experts in the field of board behaviors and executives-in-residence.  The goal of the program is to build competencies deemed necessary to be an effective director.

The Directors Education Program is currently offered through the ICD Program Partner Universities across Canada in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgaray, Toronto and Montreal.

John Tennant graduated from the Directors Education Program in March 2008 (ICD DEP18 Group).
