Friends of Granville Island is led by a Vancouver-based Board of Directors. Board members have experience in the arts, non-profit, business, and government sectors, and aim to reflect the diversity of the greater Vancouver community.


The Board of Directors is recruiting representatives with diverse lived experience and/or work experience, with interests in a range of areas, some of which might be: community, changemaking, non-profits, place-making or innovation, arts and culture or social justice.


Please contact us if you or someone you know would be a good fit for the board.


FGI’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive organization begins with setting the tone from the top, starting with the Board of Directors, whose governance criteria will include a Board Diversity Policy.

We acknowledge that good governance principles require independence, transparency, flexibility and diversity at the Board level. The FGI Board strives to ensure that its membership reflects diversity in its broadest sense. 

A combination of culture, demographics, skills, experience, race, age, gender, education, professional background, and lived experience are important for providing a range of perspectives to overcome challenges, improve the organization, and support good decision making.
