IHEA Canada Board of Directors – Volunteer Instructor Representatives

The IHEA Canada Board of Directors keeps in regular contact and meets in person once a year to discuss issues around Hunter Education in our country. The Board consists of one Hunter Education administrative representative from each of the Provinces and Territories, and two seats on the board have been reserved for volunteer instructor representatives. One instructor representing the Western Region (YT, NT, BC, AB, SK, MB) and one instructor representing the Eastern Region (ON, PQ, NB, NS, PE, NL, NU) will be selected by a committee of Administrative Board Members to sit on the Board for a specified term.

Information on the application process and copies of the application package will be available through your local Hunter Education Coordinator or equivalent and on this webpage sometime in 2014. Stay tuned.
