Designating the Treasurer seat of the Board, for the next mandate of 2 years, as being nominated by the Board instead of being elected by the members, and that this seat is a non voting member of the Board.
Considering the resolution above for the Treasurer, there were 5 seats of the Board to be filled at this AGM. 6 candidates had put their names forward, but Jean-François Pilon decided to withdraw its candidature. As such, the following 5 candidates were elected by acclamation as Board members for a mandate of 2 years, including 4 persons newly elected and one re-election:
Wikimedia Canada is proud to have a majority of women on its Board. We are also happy to welcome a member of the Board from Western Canada. We are convinced that this will help us to increase the diversity of contributors from Canada on Wikimedia projects, especially in regards to the gender gap, and to expand Wikimedia Canada's activities and reach across all of Canada.
If you have any questions about the AGM, do not hesitate to use our main talk page or to send an email to jpbelandwikimedia.ca.
Thanks to all members for their participation to the AGM and to all volunteers of the Wikimedia movement in Canada for their contribution.
Wiki Loves Monuments
Wikimedia Canada announces its participation for the sixth year in the largest photo contest in the world, Wiki Loves Monuments. Users are invited to take pictures of historic places, then, during the month of September, upload their best shots in Wikimedia Commons. Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photographic competition to promote historic sites around the World through Wikimedia projects (mainly Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons). Everybody can participate.
In Canada the contest is about the 12,000 historic places listed by Parks Canada. The goal of Wiki Loves Monuments is to encourage people to take photographs of those historic places and to upload them under a free licence to allow everybody to access them on the Internet. During the month of September you can upload as many pictures of those historic places as you want. It is not necessary that the pictures have been taken in September but only the pictures uploaded during this month will be eligible for the contest.
The 2019 Canadian winners of Wiki Loves Earth have been announced. Click here to see the Top 10. Those 10 pictures have been submitted to the international jury of Wiki Loves Earth which results are expected in September 2019. Congratulations to Fresh.waffles for the first place and thank you to all participants.
A total of 1,228 pictures have been submitted from Canada by 163 different uploaders. You can see all the submitted pictures on Wikimedia Commons:
