The Canadian Mountain Network, a national not-for-profit research organization, is conducting an annual recruitment process for new members of the Board of Directors, Board Officers, and members of Board committees.
CMN is committed to the recruitment of a diverse group of volunteers with the collective knowledge, skills and experiences to support its purpose of supporting the resilience and health of Canada’s mountain peoples and places through research partnerships based on Indigenous and Western ways of knowing that inform decision-making and action.
CMN is especially interested in recruiting Board members who are also willing to serve on its Finance, Audit and Risk Committee, which is responsible for, among other things: reviewing internal and public financial information; appropriate controls and developing policies and procedures; oversight of the annual audit; and reviewing and recommending the annual budget.
The deadline for applications is Monday August 10th and, following an evaluation process, appointments will be made on September 22nd. A nominations guide with links to the application can be found here: http://canadianmountainnetwork.ca/opportunities/
The Canadian Mountain Network (CMN) supports the resilience and health of Canada’s mountain peoples and places through research partnerships based on Indigenous and Western ways of knowing that inform decision-making and action. Established in early 2019 as an independent not-for-profit corporation hosted by the University of Alberta, CMN is the country’s first formal research organization dedicated to advancing our understanding of mountain systems, which provide diverse and important benefits to Canadians living both near and far from these distinctive and iconic landscapes.
The Network’s activities, outlined in its ?Strategic Plan,? are primarily supported by an $18.3MM, five-year grant from the Government of Canada’s ?Networks of Centres of Excellence? (NCE) program. This program funds the development of national-scale, challenge-oriented, and partnership-based research networks.
CMN’s research agenda is primarily delivered by grants to research teams across Canada based in both universities and Indigenous organizations. The Network’s research is complemented by strategies and programs for training, knowledge mobilization, and networking and partnerships.

About the employer
The Canadian Mountain Network (CMN) was established in 2019 to support the resilience and health of Canada’s mountain peoples and places through research partnerships based on Indigenous and Western ways of knowing that inform decision-making and action.
CMN is generously supported by Canada’s research granting agencies through a five-year, $18.3 million grant from the Networks of Centres of Excellence program. Combined with contributions from diverse partner organizations, this funding represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to position Canada as a global leader in mountain systems research at a time when Canada’s mountain systems are undergoing rapid and uncertain change.
To achieve our vision and goals, deliver on our mission, and live our values, we will focus our time, effort and resources on activities that fall within four reinforcing and supportive program strategies:
- Knowledge Mobilization
- Networking and Partnerships
