BAO Board of Directors

Board Composition / Board Director Bios

The Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) is governed by a 10-member board of directors, comprised of:

  • Four (4) Elected Directors (ED) who are individuals selected based on their skills and governance experience. These individuals can have no direct interest in the bereavement sector.
  • Three (3) Appointed Directors who are individuals selected and appointed by the Minister of Public and Business Service Delivery (A-MPBSD).
  • Three (3) Appointed Advisory Committee (A-AC) directors (industry representatives) who are also the chairs of the three (3) Advisory Committees.

Four board directors completed their terms in August 2023. At our virtual BAO Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sept. 27, 2023 new board directors from our nominations process, earlier this year, will be announced.  The new board will be announced after the AGM, including our thanks to previous board directors for their service.
