MDS Canada Governance
Mennonite Disaster Service Canada is registered under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act. MDS Canada operates in a manner consistent with the bylaws and policies set by its board and membership.
MDS Canada governance mirrors many of the policies and procedures of MDS in the United States. We work together through a Joint Ministry Agreement.
MDS Canada is represented on the Binational Board of Delegates and Board of Directors by the Regional Board Chair and other delegates as outlined in the binational bylaws. The Regional Board Chair and Director of MDS Canada Operations are responsible for overall regional disaster response and providing support for the Canadian units.
