Help shape the future of the Canadian internet by applying to be on CIRA’s board of directors.

CIRA is focused on the ambitious goal of building a better online Canada– one that will help foster Canada’s social, cultural and economic development and elevate our position in the global digital economy. With aspirations that large, it is important to have a board of directors that can guide us on our journey. 

CIRA board members must represent the diverse pan-Canadian perspective. We need leaders that are tech-savvy, innovative, forward-looking, business thinker, and who have a passion for Canada’s internet. CIRA board members come from diverse professional backgrounds from across Canada, with unique perspectives to help ensure we are achieving our goal for all Canadians.

The internet belongs to all of us, and impacts every aspect of our lives. At CIRA, we believe that Canadians have both the right to be informed about how the internet develops, and a responsibility to act on it. Whether you use the internet for work or play, you can influence the future development and direction of the Internet in Canada. Participating in CIRA’s governance is one way you can help build a better online Canada.

How to get involved

You can help influence the direction of Canada’s internet by applying to join CIRA’s board of directors. Applications for the board are accepted in two rounds: the nomination committee slate from June 5 to June 19, 2018 and the Member slate from August 2 to August 16, 2018.

If joining the board is not of interest, you can still get involved by showing support for nominees and voting.
