Little Mountain Residential Care & Housing Society (LMRCHS) is a not for profit care and housing organization. The Society is known and recognized for its ability to evolve and grow with the needs of the community.

In 1983 the Society was formed to build a long-term care home (Little Mountain Place) and affordable housing for seniors with low to moderate income (Little Mountain Court), to fulfill the vision of an integrated multi-level care and housing community. In 2000, Adanac Park Lodge was added to our Society to support a specialized population of adults with complex healthcare needs and cognitive impairment.

LMRCHS and its team are committed to the care of adults and seniors in our communities. We invite individuals with the same passion who can be committed to our mission, vision, and values to join our Board on the continued journey of care and housing. Following are the Director role duties, the commitment required, and the skills we seek:

The Board of Directors contributes to effective governance of LMRCHS. Specifically, it provides leadership in:

  • Monitoring the performance of the Society in relation to its mission, objectives, values and reputation
  • Oversight and approval of annual budget
  • Ensuring efficient and effective use of resources
  • Being knowledgeable about key risks and ensuring appropriate controls are in place
  • Monitor Executive Director performance and provide feedback

Time Commitment and Expectations:

  • Board meets annually for strategic planning
  • Regular board meetings are six times a year
  • Each Director participates in one to two board committees. Board committees are: Executive Committee, Finance & Audit, Redevelopment, Quality Improvement and Risk Management, Nominating, Planning, Fund Development and Community Engagement
  • Directors support Society’s fundraising efforts and participates in Society’s events
  • Volunteering hours range from 5 to 10 per month on average (no remuneration)

While prior Board governance and not-for-profit experiences are assets, we seek individuals who are passionate and committed to quality of life and care of adults with complex needs in our community, and have following specific skills:

  • Law
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Fundraising, Marketing and Community Engagement
