This application form is for screening purposes only. Once reviewed you may 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.

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.

The Redwood is committed to the development of a staff and management team that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. Applications from Indigenous women, women of colour, lesbian and bi-sexual women, and women with disabilities are strongly encouraged.
