  • Community or lived experience, such as educators, parents/guardians, parent and child advocates, social services, community leaders

Applications are due by January 25, 2021 and selected candidates will be invited to further discussion. Proposed term start date is February 17, 2021.

We believe that our Board must be representative of a variety of perspectives, skills, and lived experiences, and that our work must be centered around voices, communities, and people with identities and intersectionality that are typically underrepresented in spaces such as Boards of Directors. We strongly encourage applications from community members who are Black, Indigenous, people of colour, people with disabilities, LGBTQ2S+, or members of other marginalized or underrepresented communities.
