The core work of the Accreditation Board is to accredit and/or recommend accreditation for member certification bodies, which, in turn, certify organic operators (farms and businesses) in BC.

The structure of the Accreditation Board ensures a balanced representation of interest. Members must demonstrate a high degree of personal integrity as well as specific knowledge and experience related to organic production, inspection and certification.

There are currently no openings, but if you’d like to learn more about future opportunities, please email accreditation@organicbc.org.

On-farm volunteer

If you’d like to help support your neighbourhood farmer, sharpen your skills, or gain a better understanding of what it takes to run an organic farm, consider volunteering your time!

Check out our job board for the latest volunteer (and paid) positions on organic farms in BC, or use our organic directory to find a farm in your area to contact about potential opportunities.

 

Certification committees

Each of Organic BC’s certification bodies (CBs) has a certification committee, made up of volunteers from the CB’s membership. The committee is responsible for assessing certification applications, evaluating operators’ compliance with the Canadian Organic Standards, and ultimately awarding certification status to organic operators.

If you’re interested in volunteering to be part of a certification committee, please contact your certification body directly.

 

Organic Federation of Canada working groups

The Organic Federation of Canada’s working groups are made up of volunteers from across the country with expertise in specific areas, such as livestock, poultry, particular crops, etc. Petitions for changes to the standards are received by the Organic Federation of Canada, then brought to the various working groups for discussion, research, and recommendation. The working groups have up to 20 members, who participate in the entire process of reviewing questions and petitions for changes.

Contact the Organic Federation of Canada to find out how to volunteer for a working group: info@organicfederation.ca.
