Looking to make a contribution to our community?

The Ralph Thornton Community Centre (RTCC) is a gathering place that welcomes, connects and engages the community in all its diversity. The centre is a vital meeting space for community groups & programs in the Riverside/Leslieville area.

Are you interested in:

  • Making a difference in the Riverside/Leslieville community?
  • Encouraging equity, diversity and accessibility?
  • Representing diverse aspects of our community and the larger city?
  • Conscientiously contributing your time & energy?
  • Bringing integrity, dependability, skills and fresh ideas to the board and its committees?

Please consider an application to join the Board of Management. The board is responsible for the overall management, operation and maintenance of the centre.

We welcome people who represent the diversity in our community, especially those who:

  • Live or work in our catchment (Don Valley to Coxwell Ave & Eastern Ave to Danforth Ave).
  • Experience barriers to equal access, opportunities and resources due to disadvantage and discrimination, particularly diverse racial and ethnocultural communities, Indigenous communities, people with disabilities and people living with low income

  • Have experience in legal, finance, HR and/or change management

Board members commit to:

  • A three-year term
  • Becoming an RTCC member (cost $2-20 per year);
  • Participating on 2 committees and working groups in addition to the Board;
  • Spending 10 – 12 hours a month on the Board, including committee meetings and related activities.

Monthly Board meetings take place on the 4th Wednesday evening of the month. Board and committee meetings are conducted in English.  Board meetings are currently taking place primarily online, with a quarterly in-person (hybrid) meeting.  Committee meetings are largely online.

Prospective candidates will:

  1. Complete the short application form by April 24, 2023
  2. Review the information about RTCC and the Board found here
  3. Be interviewed by the Nominations Sub-committee members
  4. Do their best to attend an RTCC Board meeting as an observer. Upcoming meetings will be on April 26 and May 24 from 7 – 9 pm via Zoom. Please contact John Campey at or call (416) 392-6810 ext. 221 to make arrangements to attend.

We look forward to hearing from you.

If you are interested but don’t have the 10 – 12 hours a month needed to be a Board member, consider joining an RTCC Committee. For more information please contact RTCC Executive Director John Campey at
