The majority of the program takes place during regular work hours, so it is important that supervisors/managers of program applicants are fully aware and prepared to support the time commitment required.

Tuition for the 2016-2017 program is $3,850. This covers the cost of lodging for opening retreat, food and venue costs for challenge days, and program materials. Tuition payment is required by August 31, 2016 unless other arrangements have been made. Please note that we are unable to process refunds after the program orientation has taken place.

Leadership Saskatoon urges employers to support participants by providing tuition assistance. Applicants are encouraged to seek their employer's support.

Tuition Assistance

A lack of funding should not deter anyone from applying to the program. Some funding for tuition assistance is available through Leadership Saskatoon. Please see Application for Tuition Assistance - PDF Version. Please note that tuition assistance may be considered a taxable benefit by the Canada Revenue Agency.

Outside of Leadership Saskatoon, the CanSask Job Grant and the Muttart Foundation both provide funding for leadership training. Details on the CanSask Job grant can be found at; For information on the Muttart Leadership Bursary please visit:
