Board of Directors Application & Nomination Form

VWB/VSF Canada’s Board is comprised of a minimum of 3 directors and a maximum of 15 directors. Directors must support the Mission of the organization, be at least 18 years of age, and have the ability to enter into legal contracts. The membership of the Board is public information and is disclosed in the Annual Report and other means. The Board constitutes the Membership of VWB/VSF Canada as a corporate entity, which convenes at least once a year to conduct the specific business of the Annual General Meeting.

Directors serve in their individual, independent and voluntary capacity – they may not represent or otherwise act on behalf of another entity in their role as a Director of VWB/VSF Canada, may not be a staff member, and may not be remunerated for their work on the Board. Membership in the Board is incompatible with a senior position in a political party or with elected office in the national, provincial, territorial administrative, policy-making or legislative bodies of Canada.

VWB/VSF Canada recruits its Board nationally and seeks to bring together an optimal blend of the highest level of skills and the highest level of diversity. Directors are recruited primarily on the basis of their skills and ability to provide for the governance and strategic needs of the organization. In addition, while we do not use quotas in the composition of our Board membership or leadership, we do seek to ensure gender balance and cultural diversity and to reflect the different regions and Official Languages of Canada.

Directors are normally elected for a term of three years. A Director may be elected to a maximum of three consecutive terms.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Board of Directors of Veterinarians without Borders / Vétérinaires sans frontières, send a CV and completed application and nomination form via email to: recruitment@vetswithoutborders.ca.
