Board Opportunities

See yourself in our story.

For more than 50 years, Silvera for Seniors has provided safe, affordable housing to lower-income seniors in Calgary.

The need is great.

From time to time, there are openings on our board for Calgarians who share our vision and are interested in contributing their expertise to our organization.

Silvera is seeking visionary leaders to join committees of our Board of Directors and, potentially, our Board.

If you are a resident of Calgary and you have expertise in board governance, human resources, finance or land development and have strong business acumen, we want to hear from you.

We encourage interested applicants to respond with a resume and cover letter by June 3, 2017.
