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.

In 2019-2020, the Board will steward changes to FSC’s governance and membership, continue to work on food policy issues at the federal level, and reflect on strategic directions. This is a time of transition and opportunity; we have a new Executive Director, and it is clear that members of the food movement are interested in FSC being a more diverse organization and modelling practices of anti-oppression, including at the board level.

For 2019-2020, we are seeking someone with a strong financial background to serve as Treasurer, ideally from Quebec. In addition, we invite nominations from individuals with a legal background, experience in human resources, decolonization, anti-oppression, farming and small/medium scale food enterprises, food insecurity and policy. Working knowledge of French or bilingualism is an asset but not a requirement.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals of all genders who are First Nations, Métis or Inuit; racialized individuals; and individuals from diverse backgrounds from Western and Northern Canada. We have up to 4 vacancies. Please note that all people sit on the Board in their individual capacity, not as representatives of an organization.

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.
