Criteria for Board of Directors

Directors are required to be members of Food Secure Canada, and to have a commitment to the mission, vision, and values of FSC.

Food Secure Canada is looking for new Board members!  If you are interested in running for the Board of Directors, or in nominating someone, please look at our Bylaws, our Criteria for Board members, and the document that outlines the Role of the Board.  We are looking for active, committed, experienced individuals who want to contribute to the leadership of the dynamic and growing food movement. Please note that all people sit on the Board in their individual capacity.

For 2018-2019, we invite nominations of individuals with a strong background in non-profit leadership, governance, law, and accounting, familiarity with Food Secure Canada’s work and history, and policy knowledge to help steward the organization forward. We are particularly interested in receiving nominees who are First Nations, Metis or Inuit, as well as racialized peoples or people from diverse backgrounds and from the farming community.  

In 2018-2019, the Board will: reflect on strategic directions, steward changes to FSC membership, provide support to our emerging Community of Practice (e.g., facilitating regional conversations), and continue to facilitate organizational development (e.g., fundraising, board succession and governance).

Each year at the annual general meeting, the criteria for the nomination of Directors may be reviewed and amended by the members of the Association.
