Impact Statement

Kyle is committed to building new and innovative approaches to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. He tries to balance his analytical approach to life with a focus on human relationships. He believes that education is the fundamental method of social progress.


Kyle Hill is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Teach For Canada, a non-profit organization that partners with northern First Nations communities to recruit, prepare, and support outstanding teachers. In 2018, he was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal by the Governor General of Canada for his work with Teach For Canada.

Born and raised in the small community of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Kyle’s K-12 teachers played a profound and formative role in his life. His passion for education is driven by the impact his own education had on his development. In 2014, Kyle sat on the Nova Scotia Minister’s Panel on Education, which undertook a once-in-a-generation review of the province’s education system. Since 2011, he has been a member of the Board of Directors of Experiences Canada, a charitable organization which funds 5000 youth exchanges throughout Canada each year. He was also a volunteer summer school teacher in Jamaica (2008) and Ukraine (2009).

From 2011-2014, Kyle was a Consultant and Project Leader at the Boston Consulting Group in Toronto. He is an Action Canada Fellow and is a Board member of the Banff Forum.


Kyle has a B.Sc. in Physics and Mathematics from Mount Allison University, and a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in medical physics from the University of Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.


As a Fellow

Kyle conducted a feasibility study on a Teach for Canada program to establish its political and economic viability. As a Rhodes Scholar, he was also in the final stages of writing his dissertation for his PhD during his Sauvé year.
