Theatre Ontario’s mission is "to be the champion of theatre in Ontario through education and advocacy" towards a vision of a vibrant and sustainable theatre community for all Ontarians.

Theatre Ontario is seeking individuals from across the province to serve on our Board of Directors. Successful applicants will support our core values of community, collaboration, and innovation in promoting a diverse, inclusive, equitable and accessible theatre culture in Ontario.

Theatre Ontario has adopted a Collaborative Leadership Model of operations, and Board members will need to be able to work with that model.

We are looking for nominees who are passionate about theatre and bring knowledge and/or skills in one or more areas of Board governance and leadership: strategic planning, fiscal oversight, collaborative partnerships, fundraising, community outreach and engagement, advocacy, human resources, policy, law, IT.

  • participate in Board meetings (usually held four times a year at our Head Office in Toronto);
  • participate in at least one Board committee (minimum of four meetings a year, not necessarily in person); and
  • engage in activities that generate revenue (from fundraising, sponsorships, memberships, and services) on behalf of the organization.
