2021/2022 Call for Nominations
The Nomination Committee of Community Living Ontario is currently seeking candidates for election to the Board of Directors.
Community Living Ontario is a member-based non-profit charitable organization that works alongside people who have an intellectual disability, their families, its members agencies and the government to advocate for true inclusion in all aspects of life.
The Board is comprised of community members from around the Province who bring a variety of valuable backgrounds and perspectives. If you share a commitment to our mission, vision, and values, we encourage you to submit your name for consideration.
Everyone has talents, skills, interests, backgrounds, and experiences to contribute. Please tell us about yours. For example, are you a family member to someone who has an intellectual disability? Do you have any professional, voluntary, or lived experience that would contribute to the work of the board?
Community Living Ontario is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion, and applications from all qualified candidates are welcome. Applications are encouraged from people with disabilities, racialized people, Indigenous people, and people from the LGBTQ2 community. If you require any form of accommodation connected to this application, please let us know.
We have 12 Directors-at-Large on our board with six (6) vacancies to be filled this year all for a two-year term. We are particularly looking for people in all areas, in particular a need for legal and accounting expertise, and we are looking for people in all areas of Ontario, but especially people living in the Northeast.
This is an opportunity for people who support the goals of Community Living Ontario to get involved, have a voice at the Provincial level and contribute to the direction and success of Community Living Ontario.

- Council for Community Living Ontario (voting member)
