Leadership requires embracing every season of change.

Every spring activates a season of change and revitalization. One full year after COVID-19 transformed every aspect of how we live, work, interact, and play, spring 2021 ushers in a truly new beginning. At the forefront of this transformation are those who have not only endured the provocations of seasons past but have embraced the self-transformation those challenges have demanded. Whether in arts, culture, business or politics, these are the leaders who are forging a new path forward.

In this edition of INSIGHT: The Art of Living, we highlight Canadian leaders who are reshaping social, artistic and cultural landscapes at home and around the world. You will be introduced to the curators of some of the most influential art institutions in the county as they set the tone for the future of contemporary art. You will meet City of Toronto Photo Laureate, Michèle Pearson Clarke, and Canadian actress Catherine O’Hara from the iconic comedy series, Schitt’s Creek. We will also introduce you to Mike-Paul Neufville, the Canadian fashion designer behind Mike-Paul Atelier and his unique perspective on what it takes to lead and transform a brand and business during a pandemic.

Within this magazine and at sothebysrealty.ca, you’ll also discover the latest real estate trends from the perspective of some of our market-leading Realtors®, and the most desirable homes for sale in Canadian cities and communities ranked as the most liveable in the world.

We hope that the leaders you meet in this issue of INSIGHT inspire you to embrace the season ahead with renewed confidence and energy in our new reality.
