To ensure geographical representation, we are particularly interested in candidates who live or work in Brampton or the North Etobicoke area.
We welcome and value diversity and our Board strives to reflect the diverse makeup of both Peel Region and Dufferin County and the range of skills needed to guide the work of CMHA Peel Dufferin. People who are also consumers/survivors of the mental health system and/or family members, as well as those from the youth sector, are particularly encouraged to apply.
