The Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO) is a registered national and international development charity that has operated since 1967.[1] The organization uses Canadian volunteers to work with private and public sectors to accomplish goals within these service areas: strategic planning, business development, accounting and finance, organizational development, community development, governance and production and operations.[2]

CESO's primary funding currently derives from the financial contributions of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC), funders from corporations, foundations and individual donors.[3]

CESO currently has a partnership with the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), agreeing to enhance capacity in First Nations communities.[4]

Wendy Harris is the current CEO of CESO while Peter Chiddy is the current Chair of the Board of Directors.[5]

CESO was founded by several noteworthy Canadians including Maurice Strong, Mitchell Sharp, Paul Martin Sr., Claude Hebert and Cy Peachey [6]
