Ever thought that the government would be better run if it wasn’t for all those pesky politicians? You’re in luck. The City of Toronto is looking for citizen appointees to serve on the board of directors of both Waterfront Toronto and Toronto Hydro. Whether it’s planning and building a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood in the middle of an industrial wasteland on toxic soil or convincing entitled rate-payers that our aging infrastructure is on the brink of a catastrophic failure and won’t pay for itself, certainly, private citizens will have some valuable insights that might elude our elected officials.
So, if you think you’ve got what it takes to “apply your knowledge, skills and experience to draw private-sector investment and achieve significant environmental improvements, social and public realm benefits, and economic activity through revitalization of the Toronto waterfront,” or possibly help direct “a combined workforce of about 1,600 employees, assets of approximately $3.5 billion and annual revenues of approximately $2.8 billion,” now is your chance to get involved with your community.
Waterfront Toronto’s board is seeking three citizens to serve and Toronto Hydro is seeking eight.
Applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, September 24, using one of the following methods:
- EMAIL (preferred) Waterfront Toronto applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
- EMAIL (preferred) Toronto Hydro applications to email@example.com
- Fax applications for Waterfront Toronto and Toronto Hydro to 416-531-3130
- Mail or in person to NAFOR Inc., 5700-100 King St. W., Toronto, ON M5X 1C7
Information about the appointments process, specific requirements and a copy of the application form are available on the City’s website at http://www.toronto.ca/public-appointments/.
