We are presently seeking individuals with strong governance and leadership experience to join our Board of Directors.

Our mission is:

To create and deliver a model of lifelong care that optimizes health for the individuals, families and communities we serve.

We are seeking individuals who are strongly aligned with our mission and values and can play an important role in helping us continue to develop and grow as we strive to meet the needs of our patients. Board members must have strong communication and strategic critical thinking skills, along with a vested interest in our community.

The Markham Family Health Team Board of Directors typically meets on a quarterly basis with some occasional additional meetings.  Following an initial orientation process, the time commitment would be about 12 to 15 hours per year.
