Looking for Options?

Are you worried that you don't have organizational support to attend LLEAD? We understand your uneasiness.  Financial support is available to partially cover the tuition or travel. You may need to fully or partially fund yourself and use holidays to attend sessions. 


Many of us have been in your situation of pursuing degrees and professional development without employer support.  If you are concerned about having the support of a sector leader, engaging in an organization-wide project, or having a courageous conversation with your manager - talk with us.  Ultimately your career is your responsibility. It's a big decision, and we'll provide information for you to make the best decision for you - at this point in your career.

Application & Tuition

Enrolment is limited to 20 participants

Financial support - Fellowships and Bursaries - are available.

As soon as you decide to develop your strategic thinking, management capabilities and leadership strengths submit your application package.

Your Application Package has four parts

1. Application letter

2.  Letters of Support​

​Tell us about yourself by addressing these questions in no more than 2 pages:

  • Why are you interested in LLEAD?

  • What are some key challenges confronting the library and information sector (whether it is academic, public, government, information services, corporate, etc.)?

  • What skills and approaches do you have now, and will you - need as a leader and senior manager to address these? 

  • How will your current individual strengths, skills and perspectives contribute to your LLEAD colleagues' experiences?

  • What is your willingness - or your organization's willingness - to assume the registration fee, transportation costs and any incidental expenses?

Ensure you have support:

  • Include two letters, one from a senior leader in your organization (OR senior leader in an information sector organization), and one from the individual to whom you report.

  • Both letters are to confirm:

    • their support of your time in LLEAD - that LLEAD sessions will be your priority for those six months. 

    • that they will coach you to implement your learning development plan as the LLEAD program progresses.

    • your readiness and potential to continue learning, stretch your abilities, and to manage strategic functions or initiatives as a transformational leader.

3.  Your resume

Nothing too fancy; let us know your work experience & career journey to this point.

LLEAD 2020 Grad

"I’ve found this program to be some of the most valuable professional development I’ve experienced in my career and very applicable to my job which is in the information sector and not in a library. The curriculum is clearly so thoughtfully developed and I really appreciate the sharing of experiences from both the intensive and virtual meetings. The content is on management and leadership and it is a really supportive atmosphere. The diverse range of individuals participating makes it a more rounded program. Different backgrounds and provinces make for interesting conversations and perspectives. The “Wise Counsel” technique is an indispensable tool - I led a “Wise Counsel” with my staff team a few weeks ago with really great results."
