Over the course of my EY career, I’ve seen that one of the biggest risks any organization can take is standing still in the face of changing markets.

Jad Shimaly

EY Canada Regional Managing Partner

Leading critical national initiatives. Committed to improving the economic and social landscape.

As the Chairman and CEO of EY Canada, Jad is a seasoned executive with deep financial and operational experience.

Previously, Jad served on the EY Canada Executive Committee as Managing Partner for Consulting, evolving the practice’s capabilities into risk and regulatory, management and IT consulting across a variety of sectors. Under his leadership, the Consulting practice became the employer of choice for some of Canada’s top talent and now is positioned to help companies address today’s most complex issues.

Jad earned his MBA from Case Western Reserve University and his BS in Business Economics from the University of Notre Dame. Jad currently serves as EY Canada’s Chief Inclusiveness Officer and is a champion of diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace. He is actively involved in addressing issues of poverty and supporting low-income communities as part of the United Way Greater Toronto Campaign Cabinet and as a board member of Pathways to Education.

How Jad is building a better working world

“Building a better working world is an ongoing commitment to improving the economic and social landscape. It’s not something we will or won’t achieve. We have to work at it as an ongoing process. And to be successful, all businesses must embrace a sense of curiosity, collaboration and creativity, which means inspiring people to have an openness to new ideas, solutions and ways of working. And EY is doing just that: reimagining the future of our business and that of EY clients.

I’m proud of all of our efforts — from investing in new digital capabilities to transforming the workplace and advocating for diversity — to help build a better working world”
