Requirements for serving on a public sector board

Our commitment to diversity

To support strong boards that reflect the diversity of our province, women, visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of diverse sexual orientation, gender identity or expression (LGBTQ2S+), and others who may contribute to diversity in public sector board appointments are encouraged to put their names forward for appointments.

Consideration will be given to individuals with a broad range of backgrounds in community, labour and business environments. The selection process will recognize lived experience and volunteer roles as well as paid employment and academic achievements.


Anyone with a commitment to the public interest, who will serve the organization with integrity, honesty and due diligence, and who brings relevant skills and knowledge to a position, is qualified for consideration for a board appointment. Please look at the posting for the board(s) you are interested in to see the specific requirements of that organization.

Applicants must be:

  • A Canadian citizen and/or permanent resident of British Columbia, and
  • Proficient in spoken and/or written English
