The Hamilton Children’s Aid Society is seeking candidates for our Board of Directors for a three-year term, with an option for an additional three years, beginning June 2022.
Hamilton CAS is committed to building an agency that reflects the broader Hamilton community. As part of this work, we are dedicated to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the community in which we live. This also includes reviewing the composition of our Board and looking at other ways of welcoming diversity and inclusivity in the agency’s governance.
As a partner that shares the goal of advancing the well-being of others in our community, we are reaching out to you for help. In addition to providing governance and oversight to the agency, Board members also serve in other ways such as guest presenters at a Board meeting, committee work or advisory support.
Moving forward, in line with our vision and our commitment to equity, we are seeking/encouraging individuals from diverse communities to apply.
We will be reaching out to those who express an interest in the spring, after the deadline below. If you are interested in being on the Board, or have someone you can recommend, who could make a meaningful contribution to our community by participating on our Board, we would like to hear from you.
Thank you for considering this request.

The Society is mandated under Ontario’s Child, Youth and Family Services Act and, as such, is required by law to protect children from physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and harm.
