Opportunity Description:

For over 50 years, CHC has provided a safe, affordable place to call home for Calgarians of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Today, over 10,000 Calgarians, including approximately 4,000 children, have a place to call home because of CHC. CHC seeks to develop a Board whose members possess and demonstrate a strategic combination of personal attributes, expertise, social capital, competencies, and occupational backgrounds so that, collectively, it has access to a broad diversity of experiences, perspectives, knowledge, connections, and skills to carry out its governance, planning, stewardship, and advocacy functions. Board Director terms are for three (3) years and term limits are set at 3 terms. CHC orientation and training is provided to new Board Directors. Board Directors commit to attending and actively participating in approximately four (4 hour) Board Meetings/year (during the day); 1 full day Strategy Meeting; 1 full day mid-year Retreat, and approximately four (2 hour) Committee Meetings/year. Please note that most Board Directors serve on two Committees (Audit & Risk Management; Infrastructure & Asset Management; and Governance). Based on the CHC’s most recent skills matric review, preference for the upcoming Board appointments will be given to candidates demonstrating strategic skillsets and experience in one or more of the following areas: (1) Property Development, (2) Legal; and (3) Financial Management. While previous Board governance experience is not required, successful candidates must exhibit the qualities of a strong governor. If you bring a strong passion for community and ensuring that all people have access to the support they need to flourish, AND demonstrate one or more of the above noted strategic skillsets, we want to hear from you! To learn more about this exciting Board of Directors opportunity with Calgary Housing Company, please reach out to Rachel Janz via email at Please note that the closing date for applications is Friday, April 12th.
