ICF Chapter Recognition Award

The ICF Toronto Board is very proud to share with our ICF Toronto community that our Chapter has just been awarded the 2019 ICF Chapter Recognition Award! Chapter Recognition Awards highlight the exceptional work and accomplishments chapters provide to our communities.

A professional community is fostered by the people who create and support it. In collaboration and partnership with our members, the ICF Toronto has been able to create and execute on our vision of outreach, support, community engagement, social impact, and learning and development. The ICF Toronto Board is tremendously grateful to be the steward of the fine work and commitment of our members, and we are very proud of this chance to be recognized for the great work of the ICF Toronto.

Some highlights of the ICF Toronto in 2019:

  • We celebrated our 20 year anniversary with a year of events and videos of the Past, Present and Future.
  • We hosted a sold-out conference (Elevate) with excellent participant reviews
  • We launched our first Ignite program with pro bono coaching for not-for-profits

We are very grateful to be able to celebrate this award with you, and we thank you for being a part of what makes the ICF Toronto great. We are honoured, as the ICF Toronto Board, to be of service to this community of coaches.

In service,

Your ICF Toronto Board of Directors


A Message from the ICF Toronto Board

People all over the world and coaches in our own Toronto community are taking a stand to make their voices heard following the senseless deaths that have taken place over the past few weeks because of racial discrimination and injustice.

ICF Global in a recent email has powerfully articulated how the coaching we do is part of a much larger system. For us to make a difference in the lives of individuals, organizations and communities, change is needed to address inequality and systemic discrimination.

We want you to know and feel that you are part of a community that is anti-racist, that welcomes everyone, listens and takes an inclusive approach to our programming and services.

We welcome your ideas about what we need to do to be more inclusive of black, indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC) communities. Please reach out to me at barb@icftoronto.com to share your views and help us see where we may have unconscious biases that need to be addressed. Let’s make sure we are modelling within our chapter what we want to see in the world.

Message from the President, Barb Rosen Schreiber, February 2021

February is Black History Month, an opportunity to explore and celebrate the heritage, traditions and culture of African-Canadians. I wanted to pass on this link (one of many you can access) as it focuses on past and present contributions that African Canadians make to the life of Toronto in such areas as education, medicine, art, culture, public service, economic development, politics and human rights. Listen to the stories expressed creatively through music, dance, film and journeys of the effects of racism on physical and mental health, through the Awakenings Program.

This is my final President’s message for the 2020-2021 term in which I have been delighted to serve you, our ICF Community. To my fellow board members, I have nothing but admiration and gratitude for the commitment, passion and tenacity you showed throughout the year that took us through challenges, and in so many ways turned these into opportunities that allowed us to reframe and reshape how we operate as a chapter, while staying true to our values and purpose. READ MORE
