Overview

Alberta’s public agencies do important work on behalf of Albertans. The boards that govern these agencies are open to the public through an online application tool. New members are selected to vacant board positions through an open and transparent appointment process.

Diverse perspectives for a better Alberta

The Government of Alberta launched an online recruitment site in September 2016, in an effort to make it easier for Albertans to apply for board positions. Since the launch, more than 9,000 applications have been received and more than 2,000 positions filled.

The people who serve on Alberta’s boards come from all walks of life and bring a diverse range of skills and ideas to the table. They’re everyday Albertans who care about their community and decided to step up and serve.

Current board opportunities

A voluntary diversity survey is offered to people who register for board opportunity notifications on the Electronic Public Agency Appointment System (e-PAAS). It helps government understand the composition of applications to public agency board opportunities. Learn more about the diversity survey and statistics.
