Communities

onBoard Canada operates in collaboration with local organizations to deliver board matching and training opportunities to their communities. Together we aim to improve the effectiveness and inclusivity of governance boards across Canada, helping organizations build strong, efficient, and diverse boards that meet the needs of their communities.

Specialized Training Programs

Girls on Boards

Girls on Boards, launched in 2017, places community-minded young women, between the ages of 18 -25, on not-for-profit governance boards in their communities. After completing onBoard Canada’s Board Governance Fundamentals and several months of coaching with a G(irls)20 approved coach, young women begin their 1-year term on the board.

Alliance for Healthier Communities

The Inclusive Leadership in Governance course was developed through a partnership between the Alliance, onBoard Canada, and Health Nexus, and funded by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration in 2017. Four Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity in Governance online training modules were developed by Anu Radha Verma with input from all partner organizations and Alliance members including rural and urban board members, Executive Directors and members from the anti-black racism, LGBT and Francophone moral owner groups.
