City of Toronto seeking directors for Toronto Community Housing
  
As part of Toronto’s commitment to excellence in governance, City Council is seeking seven dynamic leaders to serve on Toronto Community Housing’s (TCHC) Board of Directors. Owned by the City of Toronto, TCHC is the largest social housing provider in Canada with assets in excess of $2 billion. TCHC operates 58,000 units, housing 164,000 residents.

“Toronto Community Housing is a leader in city building and its board of directors makes an important contribution to the community. It is a major corporation and we need experienced business people to oversee its operation,” said Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone, Chair of the TCHC Nominating Panel. “We encourage women, young adults 18-30, persons with disabilities, Aboriginal/First Nations people, and members of all racial minorities to apply to serve on City boards. We want our boards to reflect the diversity that is Toronto.”

The City structured the TCHC Board of Directors to represent multiple perspectives. The board is made up of two TCHC tenants, four City Councillors and seven residents of Toronto, each bringing experience in a variety of backgrounds, including social housing, business and financial management, community development, corporate governance, organizational development, labour relations, legal aid and/or social services.

Application forms can be downloaded from the City’s website at www.toronto.ca/public-appointments. Applications must be received by Friday, January 11, 2008.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won more than 70 awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
