With the help of Perrett Laver, the Foundation’s Nominating Committee has implemented thorough methodology aimed specifically at increasing the diversity of the Board of Directors

The new Directors bring a rich and diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, and fields of expertise to the Foundation’s governance team, while moving toward gender parityand building better representation of the diverse stakeholders, cultures, and communities that make up Canada.
