The Marine Renewables Canada Board of Directors is comprised of nine directors from across Canada, representing the interests of companies and organizations working in wave, tidal, and river current energy. Marine Renewables Canada aims to have a diverse Board, with representation from across Canada and expertise from across the sector. Board terms are for three years.

There are THREE (3) seats open for the 2018 Board of Directors:
– Two (2) Seats open – Western Canadian* members
– One (1) Seat open – Open to all members

* Western Canadian members include those that are located in the Western Canadian provinces or are currently active in marine renewable energy development in a Western Canadian province. This year’s Call for Nominations is allocating two seats solely to Western Canadian members in order to ensure a balance of representation on the Marine Renewables Canada Board of Directors. As a national association, it is critical that the Board represents the interest and activity of the sector across Canada.
