Devika Shah Toronto, ON

Devika is passionate about building a civic society that is grounded in diversity, equity, social and economic justice, and active democratic engagement. Her interdisciplinary background and experience in the environmental sector have strengthened her commitment to advancing grassroots, community-led, multi-stakeholder solutions, which she views as the most powerful lever for achieving systems change.

Most recently, Devika served as Executive Director of Social Planning Toronto and has previously held positions with the World Wildlife Fund Canada, Pembina Institute, York University and KCI Philanthropy. In these roles, she has strengthened organizational capacity in the areas of civic engagement, strategic integration and planning, fundraising and operations management.

Devika holds an MBA from York University's Schulich School of Business and a B.Sc. from the University of Toronto.
