We are issuing this Call for Nominations for the Hamilton Urban Core Board of Directors.


Hamilton Urban Core is an inner-city health center committed to ensuring health and well-being to the populations it serves. Its mission is “strong core, healthier lives”.


Hamilton Urban Core is committed to anti-racism and being an agent of change – addressing systemic barriers that impact the lives of the people we serve. The Core provides comprehensive primary health care and wrap-around services to people who live in poverty, new immigrants and refugees, racialized communities and people who use drugs.


It is an exciting time to be part of the HUC Board of Directors. The Board is leading a vibrant organization in a time of immense change and opportunity. We are in the   midst of a very exciting capital project with a new building to be completed by summer 2023, a new executive director, a new leadership role  in Consumption Treatment Services, and much more.


Joining this board will be an excellent opportunity for community-minded individuals, with true leadership abilities. The board follows the Policy Governance    model. Your role as a director will be to communicate with the communities we serve (the moral owners), set policy, monitor the Executive Director and ensure good governance.


Successful candidates will demonstrate a passion for our mission and commitment to the values of the organization. Successful candidates will also be disciplined team players, with keen analytical skills and the ability to be a visionary. We prefer candidates who have previous board experience, but we are willing to extend opportunities to exceptional individuals who will commit to learning.






Given the current attribute mix on the Board, the HUCCHC Board of Directors is particularly looking for candidates with the following diversities:


  • Women and gender diverse
  • Work with or are members of the Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ communities
  • Work with or are from the South Asian, Latin American or Arabic communities.
  • Work with people who use drugs or who have experience with using drugs.


The HUC Board of Directors encourages applications from individuals who reflect this diversity. We fully understand that one person could belong to more than one of these priority groups and we strongly encourage applications from candidates who reflect this diversity.


See enclosed in this letter, the background that should be reviewed by people who would consider joining this board. If this background inspires you to want to be part of a Board of Directors, we welcome you to submit your application.
