The deadline to apply is July 31, 2019.

Our Mission is to provide services in Burnaby to individuals and families going through the end-of-life journey. We support individuals who are in palliative or hospice care along with their families and caregivers. We educate our community about death, dying and bereavement.
As the Burnaby Hospice Society celebrates its 33rd year of service, we are seeking members of the community to fill openings on our Board of Directors.
The BHS board operates as the Society’s main governing body and focuses its efforts on developing and monitoring the goals and policies of the organization.
The natures of these duties are primarily strategic (setting priorities and monitoring performance), generative (big picture questions and big picture thinking) and fiduciary (stewardship of assets and accountability).
The Burnaby Hospice Society is committed to ensuring our Board reflects the community we serve. Our recruitment processes strive to ensure a diversity of backgrounds and experiences are represented, including ethnicity, gender, age, geography and cultural background.
