Online board application form

This application form is for screening purposes only. It will be reviewed and you may be contacted to submit a resume. You may also be asked to attend an interview. If there is a match, you may be asked to participate on a board committee as a first step and you will participate in board training and orientation.

METRAC is a community-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing and ending violence against women, youth, and children. We work from an anti-oppression, non-discriminatory framework. Our volunteer Board of Directors is the public trustee for METRAC. As a member of the board, a director acts in a position of trust for the community and is responsible for the effective governance of the organization. Directors are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting and serve a two-year term with possibility of re-election for two additional terms.

Note: METRAC welcomes applications from diverse people, especially members of historically marginalized communities. Unfortunately, METRACís office space is currently not wheelchair accessible.
