Executive Search for Canadian Nonprofits and Charities
Find the next great leader to advance your cause.
We help leading Canadian nonprofits & charities find, hire and develop their next great leaders.
Some Mission-Driven Organizations We Have Served
Your nonprofit shouldn’t have to compromise when searching for a highly qualified leader.
Nonprofit executive searches are commonly hindered by things like…
Filling C-level roles in the social profit sector is very challenging. You are competing with other non-profit organizations for the same talent and the for-profit industry that can lure your top talent away.
Lack of Diversity
You’re challenged to find the best leadership talent and need a systematic process to court the ideal candidate who could provide your organization with the balanced leadership it needs.
The best candidates come from positive outreach, rather than passive responses to job postings. We make pro-active connections rather than relying on just the current pool of job seekers.
At Cause Leadership we believe an exclusive retained executive search and recruitment partner works best for nonprofit organizations.
Unlike other Canadian executive search and recruitment firms that do not understand the charitable sector, we do because we work in the sector all the time. You get first-hand knowledge and relationships with the kind of candidates you are looking for.
Lack of Time & Experience
To advance your mission, you need the best available top candidates from a deep search and proactive recruitment, both of which take time and experience.
Unlike traditional channels, you get a wider and targeted reach beyond the standard search firm networks and in less time.
Why settle for less?
Find the right leader you need to advance your cause, without compromise.
Everything rises and falls with great leadership. The wrong hire can be costly. For such an important role, your organization deserves to have a list of strong candidates to choose from.
When you work with a nonprofit executive recruiter such as Cause Leadership, you get a fully managed recruitment process that ends with finding the best-qualified leader to help advance your cause.

How we help mission-driven
organizations find their
next great leader.
Ready to get started?
At Cause Leadership, we know that you are a purpose driven organization that depends on your leaders to continually advance your mission.
The problem is that filling C-level roles in the social profit sector is challenging. Not only are you competing with other non-profit organizations for the same talent, you are also competing with the for-profit sector who can lure your top talent away.
The recruitment process feels overwhelming and it’s made worse by the lack of proper tools and time to do the job well. The stakes are high and you fear missing (or losing) the ideal candidate who could provide your organization with the leadership that it needs.
We understand the value of mission-driven organizations, so we make it easy to advance your nonprofit executive search by finding the leaders that you need to succeed.
For over 20 years, we’ve been helping prominent mission-driven organizations confidently find their next great leader in Canada.
