Board of Directors

MOSAIC’s Board of Directors is responsible for setting strategic direction for the organization and oversight of its implementation.

The board restricts its activities to the following:

  • Strategic planning
  • Determination of annual objectives
  • Organizational outreach and partnerships
  • Oversight of finances to ensure sustainability
  • Response to significant community issues in the areas of settlement work

The Board of Directors meets six times per year. All of our board and committee members are volunteers. Without their support and their continued contribution of time and energy we couldn’t continue serving and empowering the immigrants and refugees to fully participate in the Canadian society.
