2023-24 Board of Directors

For information on compensating Board Members or their company, please see Board of Directors Code of Conduct Policy.

During the year, United Way Halton & Hamilton incurred legal fees with a party which a member of our Board of Directors is associated. These transactions are considered to be in the normal course of business, at or below fair value. The services from O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP assist with the interpretation of employment law and related services. Past Board Chair and managing partner in the law firm, James McAskill is uninvolved in these matters. All such service coordination, provision and billing was done through separate contacts in the firm.
