Back to Team page

Kyle has spent most of his life in the impact sector. Growing up in Oakville he spent his early summers mentoring at-risk youth through free summer camps and after school drop-ins. In university he held numerous leadership positions, including treasurer of his 120 year-old literary society. After a brief stint on Bay Street he combined his banking skills with his social conscience, founding Canada’s first nonprofit mortgage provider out of CSI Spadina, which provided subsidized interest rate mortgages to people working in the nonprofit sector. At CSI Kyle fell in love with Social Innovation and eventually joined the staff team where he has held multiple positions from product manager to department manager. Kyle now leads communications and engagement for the emerging co-created national social innovation network.
