Vision, mission and values

Our vision

A greener, healthier, happier, wealthier and more prosperous Canada for all. 

Our mission

Telfer unlocks knowledge in a bilingual environment for the betterment of all our communities.

What sets us apart 

Telfer takes a results-oriented approach to building a better Canada. The research and data analysis we do generates knowledge that we share with our students and with key constituencies in Canada and around the world.  

We’re driven by a passion for delivering positive societal outcomes in line with what we value: people, the planet, and profit. We measure our success in terms of how our actions align with macro, societal outcomes. We educate our purpose-driven students through coursework and experiential learning to become better decision-makers. We share knowledge with decision-makers to inform their policy choices, as well as shed light on the potential impact of their options. 

While other business schools concentrate on building capital, at Telfer, we’re dedicated to building a better world.

We instil in all our members a sense of professionalism rooted in preparedness, timeliness and conscientiousness

We value and foster teamwork and collegiality, looking to attract diverse members both nationally and internationally. These values create a community where members’ approachability and availability are clear to all.
