Owen Charters

President & CEO, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. Advocate for children and youth.

As President & CEO of BGCC, I am thrilled to be championing the cause of young people in Canada.

Over my career, I have worked with many non-profit organizations, including the YM-YWCA, Easter Seals, Muscular Dystrophy Canada, Sunnybrook Health Science Centre Foundation, CanadaHelps, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.

A proponent of a strong, collective voice for the non-profit sector, I am currently chair of Imagine Canada, and a member of the Advisory Committee for the School for Advanced Studies in the Arts and Humanities at Western University and adjunct member of York’s faculty, lecturing at the MBA-level on nonprofit management in Canada.
