Sarah Doyle

Director of Policy + Research

Sarah’s experience and passion for public policy led her to the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (BII+E), where she is the Director of Policy + Research. In this role, Sarah leads the development of the Institute’s research agenda and oversees the work of the Institute’s policy team.

Having worked on policy development both inside and outside government, Sarah sees a need for translators with the ability to bridge sectors and disciplines. She is keen to build more collaborative spaces that allow policy makers to draw on the collective insights of a wide range of stakeholders.

Sarah believes that BII+E is ideally placed to help translate the expertise and experience of those working at the coalface of innovation and entrepreneurship into advice that is legible for governments.

Sarah is committed to policy that supports inclusive growth. Prior to BII+E, Sarah was a Senior Manager at the Centre for Impact Investing at the MaRS Discovery District, where she was responsible for working with community, government and private sector stakeholders to develop and advance policy that unlocks the potential of the Canadian impact investing market.

Sarah also worked within Canada’s Privy Council Office as a policy analyst, where she developed advice for the Prime Minister on a range of social policy issues. She also has experience in refugee and asylum policy through a past position at Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Sarah’s experiences, interests and insight into social policy allow her to contribute as an active member of the Board and Quality Committee of St. Stephen’s Community House.

She holds a Master of Science in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science, where she was a Commonwealth Scholar, and is a graduate of the McMaster University Arts and Science program.
