They work diligently to ensure that our organization is run in an ethical, efficient, and responsible manner. We are grateful to have such a committed and passionate group of individuals working with us.

What to Expect
As per our By-Laws, a Board Member shall hold office for a three-year term so long as they remain eligible under the terms. These terms relatively standard (an individual, 21 years of age or older, not bankrupt, a person who has been found incapable by any court in Canada or beyond). We also ask that every direction in exercising their duty shall:
1. Act honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interests of the charity;
2. Exercise the care, diligence and skill that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in comparable circumstances; and
3. Comply with the letters patent, the bylaws and any policies adopted by the Board of Directors
If you agree to join the Board, I can send you a copy of our By-Laws as well as our next meeting date (September 22nd). We usually meet via teleconference from 7pm-9pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
