Board of Directors Election 2022

Voting is now open for FirstOntario’s Board of Directors election. This is your opportunity to support our continued success by choosing the fellow Members you feel will best fill important roles on the Board of Directors. FirstOntario Members who are 14 years of age or older and are Members in good standing as of January 6, 2022 are eligible to vote in our Board of Directors Election.

For this election, there are four vacancies on the Board. The candidates with the four highest vote results will be elected for a three-year term.

FirstOntario is a successful financial institution with over $5 billion in assets under management. The credit union regulator, the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario, requires that qualified Members with the necessary experience serve on FirstOntario’s Board of Directors.

FirstOntario’s Board of Directors interviewed all candidates for this election and have endorsed the candidates they believe have the qualifications and experience to best serve on your Board as set out by our regulator and credit union. We ask that you please take into consideration the Board’s endorsed candidates when casting your votes.
