Board Member-CANADA-WIDE

Ongoing
- We are a national organization thus we accept applications from across Canada! - 
The Amelia Foundation was created to provide healthcare to the companion animals of people experiencing homelessness. It is estimated that a quarter of people experiencing homelessness have a companion animal, most commonly dogs. Studies that have looked at this relationship have determined that having a companion animal provides friendship and responsibility, and significantly contributes to emotional wellbeing. Since people experiencing homelessness treasure their companion animals, they tend to prioritize them, which can sometimes come at a cost. Most shelters do not allow non-human animals, so those experiencing homelessness alongside their companion animals spend more time outside living on the streets. As the companion animals and their humans spend so much time together, the animal becomes very attached. This makes it difficult to go to job interviews, go grocery shopping, visit rental apartments, etc. The Amelia Foundation believes that healthcare is best when it is holistic; we want to provide not only medical care to companion animals of those experiencing homelessness, but also act as a bridge between the people experiencing homelessness and their companion animals and all of the resources that have become barriers for them.

We need more visionaries who care deeply about the wellbeing of companion animals and have skillsets that would be beneficial to our board. We value excellent communication skills, networking abilities, fearlessness and collaboration. We also use Google suite and Slack, thus experience in those platforms is preferred. Experience caring for animals is an asset. We would also prefer experience with non-profit organizations.
Currently, the following positions are in high demand: volunteer lawyers, accountants, veterinarians or veterinary technicians, marketing advisors. However, we welcome any and all sources of knowledge and expertise.
We hold weekly meetings every Tuesday at 7pm, however we also have a Friday daytime slot in case some individuals are unable to make it on Tuesdays.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
We are a fast paced, high-energy non-profit with big dreams and big plans to achieve them. We believe that surrounding yourself with productive people will increase your own productivity, so if you’re looking to add that extra motivation in your life, join us!
