The Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL), formerly known as the Canadian College of Health Service Executives (CCHSE), is a national, member-driven, non-profit association dedicated to ensuring that the country’s health system benefits from capable, competent and effective leadership.
College members come from every health sector and region in Canada and are at varying stages of their careers. Members include students, and health leaders who work in a variety of environments including medical companies, health authorities, health consultants, multi-level care facilities, hospitals, public and private health agencies, health charities, the Canadian military and all levels of the Canadian government.
With 21 chapters across the country, representing thousands of individual and corporate members, the College offers capabilities-based credentialling, professional development opportunities, and an extensive career network. Guided by a Code of Ethics and the LEADS in a Caring Environment Framework, the College helps individuals acquire the skills they need to change their own organizations and, ultimately, the health system.
