have the opportunity to make an impact on the community
La Maison des Collines, a nonprofit palliative care home providing compassionate and dignified palliative care to the residents of the Des Collines and greater Outaouais region, is seeking candidates interested in serving on its Board of directors in a volunteer capacity.
In an effort to continually reflect the diversity and vibrancy of our community, the Board is seeking community-minded leaders, particularly with experience in either finance, governance, health care, legal affairs, public affairs and fundraising. Previous experience on a board of directors is an asset.
The Board is composed of a maximum of 9 Directors with terms of typically three-years renewable once. In 2020, due to early departures and end of terms, the different positions to be filled vary between one and three years with options for renewal.

Board candidates should:
- Be a strong champion for La Maison des Collines, and act as an ambassador
- Be active in the communities we serve
- Be a strong collaborator
