Board Governance

To continue our support of all non-profits, charities and community groups in the province, we have pulled together a list of resources to help during the coronavirus pandemic. Visit COVID-19 Resources to learn more.

We know that non-profits and charities play an important role in our society, providing a wide range of services in a variety of areas (health care, education, social services, etc.), and that these organizations are governed by volunteer boards of directors.

To accomplish their goals and achieve their mission, non-profits and charities require a robust system of governance, and at the head of which there needs to be an effective board of directors. A strong, effective board of directors has a greater likelihood of success than a poorly governed organization.

Our Board Governance training is designed specifically for not-for-profit Board members, managers and staff who want to contribute to increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of their organization.
