Learning Education Advisory Group (LEAG)

Who We Are -- What We Do

The “Learning Education Advisory Group” (LEAG) is a key part of HealthCareCAN and CHA Learning’s member engagement strategy. Comprised of vice-presidents/senior-directors of ‘People’ (human resources) and  those with leadership roles in learning and leadership development, LEAG provides a valuable and important voice for members to influence and direct the strategic priorities for CHA Learning.

Since its inception, LEAG has also become an important and valued networking opportunity for these executives to discuss emerging policy and operational issues and needs related to learning/organizational development within their organizations and regions, to obtain peer support and advice, and to share leading practices with one another.

LEAG is not a committee of the Board and acts exclusively in an advisory capacity to HealthCareCAN staff who rely on this advice and insight to guide our operations and future planning and strategy so that CHA Learning and HealthCareCAN can best serve our members and the greater health system.

LEAG issues as call for nominations to our members in the fall of each year.

HealthCareCAN and CHA Learning are truly indebted and thankful to this phenomenal and deeply engaged and dedicated group of volunteers who make up LEAG — they support CHA Learning and our continued mission to empower health professionals with the knowledge, skills, and relationships to lead health system improvement.
