Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is elected by the members of the Mennonite Benevolent Society at their Annual General Meeting.

The MBS Board is comprised of 11 elected members from Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, representing a wide range of distinguished careers in business, management, academia, public service, medicine, education and the social sciences.

With a pervading sense of faith in God, compassion for our residents, and respect for each other and the staff, the Board of Directors is committed to the vision that began in 1953 of providing long term care and housing—and to keep growing in our capacity to do so.
