Join the SCIO Board of Directors​

Our work matters.​

There are more than 40,000 people living with an SCI in Ontario and more join our community every day. It’s our job to help strengthen their skills, opportunities and resolve to move from injury to independent living within a fully accessible and equitable province, just as our founders envisioned.

Looking to share your energy and expertise to help grow this dynamic charity?

Our Board of Directors is a diverse group of individuals that represent our community in a variety of ways; through the skills and resources they offer to support our mission; their experience as a person with a spinal cord injury; their professional insights into our services and activities; and their ability to develop strategic alliances and partnerships.

There’s room on our Board for people who are strongly aligned with our mission and values, and can play an important role in helping us continue to develop and grow as we strive to meet the needs of our community. Do you have strong communication and critical thinking skills? An interest in supporting our community? Let’s talk!

The term for Board members is a minimum of 2 years. Meetings occur approximately five times per year along with our Annual General Meeting in June. Board members are also asked to sit on one of five Board committees: Finance, Advocacy, Governance and Nominating, Marketing & Fundraising and Quality Assurance. We actively encourage Board member to participate in events and activities that support Spinal Cord Injury Ontario. 

At Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, ‘Diversity’ and ‘Inclusion’ are more than just words for us. They’re the principles guiding how we build our teams and cultivate leaders. Our goal is to have a Board that is reflective of our community.
