Documents to Review in Consideration of Applying 

Strategic Plan 2018-2022

According to the Ontario Library Boards Association, it is a responsibility of the outgoing Library Board to create a legacy document and to assist in recruiting the incoming board so they may be successful in completing the tasks and requirements of the next term. BMPL will have two legacy documents to guide the work of the new Board: the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan and the Feasibility Study and Space Plan(s). It will be the responsibility of the incoming board to implement these plans and to create a legacy document in 2022 for the subsequent Board.

Additional BMPL Documents to Help You Make Your Decision

We have also added the following items to this page to assist candidates in learning about the governance process.

MTCS Standards

Although the Board is not directly responsible for operational and administrative functions of the organization, the following are Ministry of Tourism Culture and Sport standards which guide the GLAM.

Police Criminal Records Check 

An OPP Police Criminal Records Check (PCRC) is required for the Library Board, MAC and ACC appointments to be finalized.  The Blue Mountains OPP Detachment is offering an onsite PCRC on Nov 2nd.  Individuals considering applying for this or other local boards may wish to complete the PCRC on this day to expedite the process.  A PCRP must be provided to the CEO prior to the deadlines listed under each Applicant Information section.  Vulnerable Sector Search is not required for board or council members.  A letter of statement is required for PCRC.  A personalized letter can be provided or you may use this general form.
