Need DEDICATED VOLUNTEER board members for a Non-Profit help centre that supports people representing themselves in all legal matters. We incorporated on Dec 31/15. This is a CANADA-WIDE project!!
DID YOU KNOW: That nearly 66% of all family law cases (custody of child, divorce, child support, etc) in Canada have at least ONE party representing themselves at some point in the case. This is not restricted to only family cases, but Small Claims Court, Human Rights Tribunals, Landlord/Tenant Boards... These people most of time, can't qualify for Legal Aid Programs and don't make enough to pay for a lawyer. So they represent themselves not knowing what they are doing and they can seriously harm themselves by doing so.
YOU: An individual who is passionate about social justice and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We are looking for people who speak up in public for what they believe in. Experience an asset but not necessary. Please send resume with a short paragraph about why you think you'd be great fit for a board position.
COMMITMENT: MINIMUM 2 hours per month - max: ?? How much time can you afford to donate?? Right now we schedule one board meeting monthly (2hrs). Phone or video conference available for board members who are not in the home office area (Windsor, Ontario) so you can attend and volunteer and vote from ANYWHERE in the world!!
