Community Addictions Services of Niagara (CASON) provides relevant treatment resources for individuals and their families with alcohol, drug and gambling addictions.  We envision an inclusive community where people have the opportunity to overcome the challenges of addiction.

We are currently looking for individuals from Niagara to serve on the 2017-2018 Board of Directors.

Our Structure:

We are a governance board who meets nine times per year in St. Catharines (fourth Thursday of each month from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.).

Who we are looking for:

We are looking to complement our existing board to reflect the diversity of the Niagara Region including gender, ethnicity, culture, economic status, disabilities, skills, perspectives and expertise.  Ideally we would like to add individuals with experience in Marketing, IT, Risk and Safety, Policy Development and Public Relations; however other areas of expertise would be welcomed.

Our Strategic Priorities:

We are focused on bringing awareness to addictions and treatment, providing high quality service within an effective organization and improving access and inclusivity so people receive the right care, at the right time, in the right place.

How to be considered:

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and have a desire to help CASON achieve their mission and vision.  The deadline to apply is May 19, 2017.  New members will be proposed at our AGM on June 15.  A letter of interest can be sent to:
