Region 5 governance mirrors many of the policies and procedures of MDS in the United States. We work together through a Joint Ministry Agreement.
Region 5 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 Region 5 Operations are responsible for overall regional disaster response and providing support for the Canadian units.
