AMO is undertaking an open solicitation for expressions of interest from eligible persons to be nominated to serve on the MPAC Board.  

Interested candidates are invited to submit an application by Friday, November 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm. From among qualified candidates, AMO’s Board will select and submit twenty-two names to the Minister of Finance.

The Province requires (by statute) that AMO submit annually a list containing the names of twenty-two individuals recommended by AMO for appointment to the MPAC  Board.  AMO undertook an invitation for expressions of interest most recently in 2015 and is inviting expressions of interest again to create an updated list of nominees.

The MPAC Board of Directors is appointed by the Minister of Finance, and is composed of:
  • seven individuals who are current or former elected officials of a municipality or current or former officers or employees of a municipality ("municipal representatives");
  • four individuals who represent the interests of property taxpayers ("taxpayer representatives") and
  • two individuals who represent the interests of the Province ("provincial representatives").
The MPAC Board elects a Chair from among the municipal representatives who are current or former elected officials of a municipality, and the Minister appoints a Vice-Chair from among the provincial representatives.

Here is a position description of an MPAC Board Member. AMO will assess candidates against the list of qualifications (starting on page 5), including respecting and promoting the principles of equity, diversity and regional consideration. Additional details regarding this Board are available at the Public Appointments Secretariat website or at MPAC’s Board Governance page. Candidates are not required to apply through the Public Appointments Secretariat at this time.

Those who are interested in applying are encouraged to complete the Expression of Interest form and submit their resume to mpacboard@amo.on.ca.
