Call for Directors!




Unlock Democracy is a non-profit organization advocating for democratic renewal across Canada.  Our goal is to rebuild democracy in Canada through inspiring campaigns that foster grassroots participation to overcome apathy and create meaningful change through political and legislative reforms.

Led by the our Creative Director Dave Meslin, our current projects include Local Choice, Lego my Vote, #Vote16 and Better Ballots 101 . 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.  

As a newly incorporated organization, UDC's existing 7-member board of directors is looking for  fun, dedicated, knowledgeable and democracy-loving individuals who reflect the diverse makeup of Canada to join the Board of Directors for Unlock Democracy Canada.  We are currently looking for individuals who have some of the following skills or background:

  • Fundraising / grant writing 
  • Human Resources
  • Anti-oppression
  • Strategic Communications
  • Non-profit experience (professional or Board of Directors)

All people above the age of 18 and residing in Canada are eligible to apply. Unlock Democracy strives to build a diverse organization made up of Board members across Canada and with a diversity of talent, political views, and lived experiences. Applicants from equity-seeking groups are encouraged to apply and self-identify in their application.

The time commitment will vary, but will roughly be 6-8 hours a month including focused, action-oriented Board meetings. 

Please send an expression of interest telling us a bit about yourself and why you are interested in being on the Board of Unlock Democracy. Please also include your resumé and/or a link to your LinkedIn page. Creative submissions are encouraged!

Applications may be sent to [email protected] to find out more.   


Application due date: May 8, 2021
