Call for Board of Directors!

After seven years as an informal grassroots organsation, we’ve decided to formalize and incorporate as a non-profit! That means we’ll need a Board of Directors. We're looking for fun, dedicated, democracy-loving individuals who have some of the following skills or background:

  • Fundraising / grant writing 
  • Legal background
  • Finance
  • Communication
  • Administration
  • Digital platforms
  • Non-profit experience (professional or Board of Directors)

Our goal is simple: to create campaigns that foster grassroots participation to overcome apathy and create meaningful change through political and legislative reforms.

Along with our Creative Director, Dave Meslin, Unlock Democracy is currently being led by an informal steering committee. Our current campaigns include #TimeToTopple (a municipal voting reform initiative in Ontario) and LEGO my Vote!  We are also looking at new campaigns as they relate to Covid-19’s impact on democracy, including a greater willingness to build bridges across partisan divides and the need to build virtual networks for community collaboration.  

Anyone residing in Canada (18 and over) is eligible to apply. We ideally would like to build a diverse organization that is reflective of the country we live in.
The time commitment will vary, but will roughly be 10-12 hours a month including focused, action-oriented Board meetings. 
Please send a concise expression of interest to to find out more.  Feel free to be creative!  

Application due date: Monday, May 25, 2020

Colum Grove-White and Jeff Dennler,
on behalf of the Unlock Democracy steering committee
