We are seeking new members for our co-operative’s Board of Directors, both to replace a board member who is moving later this year* and to strengthen our capacities as we move towards opening our doors.

We are looking for positive, hard-working, & committed individuals preferably with some board level experience and a passion for local food and co-operation. Could this be you?

We are specifically interested in candidates with the following skills and experience to build on our current strengths:

  • Financial Management
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing / Communications
  • Co-operative experience
  • Grocery / Food retail experience

Board positions will range from one to three years, with terms being established at our first AGM in 2014, but we are looking for candidates with a minimum two year availability for the board.  If you are interested please send an email by 5pm on July 26, 2013 to with your resume and a brief introduction explaining why you would like to be a member of your co-op’s Board of Directors.  Positions are only open to members of The Mustard Seed Co-operative Grocery Inc.
