Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions (SMFC) is an integrated child and family services committed to working collaboratively with our community to enhance the safety and wellbeing of children, youth and families. We are currently seeking dynamic, dedicated volunteers to help govern our organization.

Board members are concerned community members who are:

  • Supportive of the Agency’s Vision, Purpose and Values
  • Team oriented with good decision-making skills
  • Able to attend and participate in 10 Board meetings each year as well as committee meetings
  • Age 18 or over and live or work in Simcoe County or the District of Muskoka

The Nominating Committee will consider a wide variety of skills, experience, capacity and attitude to fulfill expectations of this important role. While we encourage all interested persons to apply, as a skills-based board, we are currently interested in community members who have experience in the following areas:

  • Finance/Financial Services
  • French Language Services
  • Diversity Issues

SMFC is an inclusive and equitable agency encouraging applications from qualified women and men including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons.

Board members gain an understanding of the issues facing child welfare, children’s mental health and the process of governance.  They also help to raise the visibility of the Agency by communicating our purpose and serving as ambassadors within the community.

If you have a desire to make a difference in your community and a heart for the safety and well-being of children and youth, please contact Kristina Stewart, Executive Assistant for the Board, at (705) 725-6587, ext. 2291 or Kristina.Stewart@familyconnexions.ca
