Angie Peters
President & CEO

After 16 years as a senior executive in Telecommunications, Angie moved into the social profit sector to support initiatives investing in people and working towards the end of poverty. Prior to joining YSM, Angie founded and led ZOE Alliance Inc., a for-profit social enterprise that equipped and empowered village-based businesses in developing nations for sustainable growth. Building on her own experience of growing up on social assistance, Angie was driven by a desire to align her career with her passion to advocate for vulnerable people. She joined the team at YSM in 2013 as President and CEO, and has since set the organization on a path toward realizing the end of chronic poverty in Toronto in one generation. She currently leads a team of 185 staff, over 3500 volunteers and multiple strategic partners who share her goal and vision for the city of Toronto. Angie serves as part of the Advisory Board of the MaRS Solutions Lab, the Mid-East Advisory Table of the LHIN, and the Executive Directors Network in Regent Park while working on her master’s degree in leadership. In her free time, she enjoys travelling, the outdoors, and attending live theatre with her husband and two adult children.
