2020 Education Council election
Education Council: There are four (4) student positions open for nominations. There are three (3) faculty positions open for nominations from the following areas (all other areas have achieved maximum representation):
- Indigenous Education & Community Connections
- Health & Human Services
- Trades & Technology
- Arts & Science
Note The College and Institute Act mandates that the rules for election of members to the Education Council must reflect the distribution of programs and provide for representation of program and education support areas.
To meet this mandate and ensure equity and fairness in representation, the composition of available seats for Education Council is determined at the start of each election cycle prior to the start of the nomination period.
The existing composition and student enrolment numbers will generally be the principle factors used in determining composition from faculties; at times, other decision factors may include feedback from representative group leadership, the number of instructors per faculty/area, historical representation, and the College’s strategic priorities.
When there is more than one candidate for one seat but no nominations in another, the seat will be assigned to minimize vacancies and maximize the number of faculty representatives on Education Council.
