TransLink is the regional authority responsible for the planning, building, and operating of an integrated transportation system for the movement of goods and people in Metro Vancouver. With a combined workforce of 7,800 people and having generated approximately $2.14 billion in revenues in 2020, TransLink and its operating subsidiaries represent one of the largest organizations in British Columbia and is one of only a small number of agencies worldwide charged with the responsibility for an integrated urban transportation network, including the development of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.

TransLink’s independent Screening Panel is seeking three individuals to contribute seasoned executive leadership, business acumen, and operational expertise to TransLink’s Board of Directors. Consistent with TransLink’s governing legislation, the Screening Panel is required to provide a list of qualified candidates by September 2021 to the Mayors’ Council for its consideration. We welcome all applications by 11th August 2021.
