The League recognizes the historical and ongoing colonial significance of our organization name, and we acknowledge that not all members of our community identify with the term "Canadian." We support these members and their right to self-identify while still having access to the programs and services offered by the League.
Governance & AGM
Our Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is elected each spring by the League membership at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Our Board comprises between five and eight incredible volunteers who donate their time, expertise, and networks in service of the League's mission. We are deeply grateful to all of the poets who have contributed to the growth of the organization with time spent on our Board of Directors (formerly known as the National Council).
2024 - 2027 Strategic Plan
Throughout the fall of 2023, the League Board of Directors worked tirelessly to prepare a new strategic plan to guide the organization through to the spring of 2027.
The League's strategic directions for the next three years are:
- Organizational sustainability and stability
- Inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA)
- Sector relevance
The 2024-2027 Strategic Plan is aligned with the League of Canadian Poets mandate and mission, and will contribute to the long-term presence of a national advocate for Canadian poets and poetry in Canada. In the short term, through this plan the League will create regional connections, remove access barriers, and stabilize our organization to ensure that all poets are represented in the League’s advocacy, programs, and services.
The Board of Directors will develop a reporting and measurement template to track and report on our progress towards our goals. We will measure results with quantitative and qualitative data, as well as with financial and statistical information about our programs, services, membership, and leadership. The League will report on the progress of our strategic plan commitments through our annual reports, website, and Annual General Meeting.
