Elections for vacancies on the FCO Board of Directors will take place during the 10th Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, June 29, 2021.

The Board aspires to include within its ranks a diversity of persons including those who can bring demonstrated networking skills to the Board table. We are seeking to increase the number of Francophones and women on the Board.

This year’s election will fill five Board positions. We are pleased to confirm that three directors whose terms will end on June 29 have agreed to stand for re-election. We are actively encouraging members to nominate potential candidates to present a full slate for all Board positions.

Members wishing to be candidates for a Board position must submit a brief biographical note to the FCO office (e-mail: by midnight Monday June 7, 2021 marked “Attention: THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE.” Nominations received after this date can not be accepted.

Please note: To become a Board Director, a person must be 18 years of age or older and a member of the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa. Any member may nominate themselves or any other member to stand for election. Anyone who is an undischarged bankrupt or mentally incompetent person is not eligible to become a director of FCO.

We look forward to seeing you at our virtual AGM on June 29th at 7PM
