Our Board

Who is our Board?

The PtD board was created as the primary governing body that will develop strategies and provide broad guidance and oversight to support the Initiative’s operations and key priorities. The board has a Chair, Deputy Chair and Executive Manager

Any member can apply for Board membership. Please submit a Board Nomination Form by email

Each Board member organization that is selected from a constituency group appoints a representative and an alternate representative; these individuals represent the organization on the Board and act in their official capacity. 

While members of the Board are expected to make decisions based on the best interest of PtD, PtD recognizes that each member organization must act within their legal mandates and capacities. Board members do not owe a fiduciary duty to the Board.
