We encourage and welcome applications from everyone, particularly those interested in expanding the diversity of our Board, and addressing specific skill sets and areas of experience to strengthen our organization.

We are also seeking individuals with financial, non-profit governance, policy, and fund development experience. 

The anticipated term is one to two years. Board Members may serve a total of three, two-year terms (maximum 6 years). 

Expected Time Commitment: 

Approximately 10 meetings per year, each lasting 1½ to 2 hours, with additional involvement at the committee level.

A Board Orientation will be held following the AGM, at a date to be announced.
