DescriptionThe Sheldon Chumir Foundation for Ethics in Leadership is a non-profit organization based in Calgary which conducts activities across Canada.
 
The Foundation is supported by a bequest by Sheldon Chumir, who was a lawyer, businessman, civil libertarian and Alberta MLA (1986 - 1992).  Sheldon observed that "leadership exercised by individuals motivated by high ethical purpose can bring about significant change for the betterment of our society." He wanted the Chumir Foundation to "advance and encourage this type of leadership."
 
The Foundation works on a variety of issues to engage the public and nurture demand for ethical leadership.

Over the last few years, the Foundation’s priorities have been (1) ethical issues connected with identity, diversity and “otherness”, (2) recognition and protection of human rights and civil liberties and (3) public sector governance, rule of law and renewal of our democratic institutions, including public education.
