About the Coady Institute

Established by St. Francis Xavier University in 1959, the Coady International Institute is a world-renowned centre of excellence in community-based development and leadership education. The Coady International Institute works with innovative people and organizations to create effective, practical and sustainable solutions to reduce global poverty and injustice.  Increasingly, the Coady Institute is focusing on the particular needs of women as they take on greater roles and responsibilities in leading strong organizations, and creating just and inclusive societies. The Coady Institute’s partnership with the Canadian Women’s Foundation builds on its long and distinguished history of quality education, productive partnerships and research in the field of development leadership.
