Call for Expression of Interest to Board of Trustees and Board Committees of Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) invites submissions from individuals who are interested in being considered for the CAMH Board of Trustees and/or membership on Board committees. The Board of Trustees of CAMH has overall responsibility for the governance of CAMH. It provides strategic leadership to CAMH in establishing its vision, mission and core values and defining policies that reflect them.  It adopts policies to ensure the effective management of the organization’s human and financial resources and to ensure excellence in the provision of care. The Board is also responsible to its funders and the community at large for the operations of CAMH. The CAMH Board is comprised of 18 elected Trustees and six ex officio Trustees. Specifics about our present Board composition can be found at​ under “Who We Are”. 

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)
  • Government
  • 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

1001 Queen St. West
