The Board will prioritize the recruitment of different skills, expertise and experience over time depending on the particular needs of the Board in any given year. First and foremost, CAMH is strongly committed to the principle of equity and respects the diversity of the individuals and communities we serve. The Board’s recruitment process strives to have its membership reflect the cultural, gender, ethnic, linguistic, racial and religious characteristics of the communities CAMH serves. We aim to ensure that the Board is comprised of individuals who bring provincial perspective, direct experience in the addictions/mental health area; experience from other boards; community involvement; and the perspective of consumers and families to the Board table.
Applicants will be considered based on their relevant experience and knowledge but, generally speaking, recruitment will focus on an individual’s ability to provide insight and leadership in organizational or healthcare sector strategy; governance; executive or organizational oversight and management; quality and patient/client safety; financial stewardship; risk management; and relationship building with Government, stakeholders and partners. While all applications will be considered, preference this year will be given to those whose resumes include experience in one or more of the following:
- Property Development (city building and negotiation of large scale projects)
- Community Mental Health
Your submission should include the reasons you would like to serve with CAMH and an indication of your commitment to, knowledge of, and/or experience with the addictions or mental health fields. Previous experience on volunteer Boards or committees is an asset and reference to that experience should also be included.
The Board’s Governance Committee will review responses and recommend nominees for vacancies on CAMH Board of Trustees and its committees.
The deadline for receipt of submissions is January, 31, 2018. Correspondence, including a current CV, should be forwarded to:
Kristin L. Taylor
Vice-President, Chief Legal & Risk Officer
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
1001 Queen St. West
Bell Gateway Building, 6th Floor
Or faxed to: 416-583-1236
We thank you for your interest in CAMH. Please note that only those being considered for an interview this year will be contacted.
