Launched in 2007, 21inc’s advanced leadership experiences emerged in New Brunswick from the province’s Next NB initiative. The organization was incorporated by alumni passionate about development of the region’s emerging talent, and has spread to encompass all four Atlantic Provinces.
This year, for the first time ever, the 21Leaders program is being offered simultaneously in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
21inc boasts a network of over 150 outstanding leaders across Atlantic Canada, including several that hold elected office, chair community groups, and run leading organizations.
21inc is supported by the Government of Canada, through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), the Province of New Brunswick and the Province of Nova Scotia. Several business partners are also providing support to the program including RBC Foundation and longtime supporter, Bell Aliant.
