In return for sitting on the Board, members will be able to actively contribute to and influence the development and advancement of the Canadian digital health industry by ensuring that Digital Health Canada remains a strong and respected organization. Board members also contribute to their own personal and professional growth. Being a Digital Health Canada Board member may well be one of the most fulfilling professional development opportunities of your career.
Board terms were changed from two to three years at a Special Member Meeting February 7, 2023. It was determined that members are better served by a board director term of three years; the extended term would create a longer runway for engagement and stewardship following board director onboarding; and the longer term maintains a consistent opportunity for new members to run and join the board.
