The Good Samaritan Society, a Lutheran Social Service Organization, is a not-for-profit, registered charity with over 65 years of experience providing specialized health and community care services in innovative and caring environments.
There are four standing Committees to ensure the efficient operation of The Good Samaritan Society and Good Samaritan Canada: Compensation and Human Resources, Finance and Audit, Governance, Quality and Safety. Committee Chairs are elected by Committee members and receive authority from the Board of Directors.
The role of the Compensation and Human Resources Committee is to assist the Board in oversight regarding the President and CEO and senior leadership evaluation, compensation, and succession planning; organizational structure, code of conduct and ethics framework; human resources planning, policy and reporting; occupational health and safety planning, policy and reporting; and pension plan and group RRSPs.
The role of the Finance and Risk Management Committee is to approve, monitor, evaluate, advise and make recommendations on financial matters affecting the organization and its related entities. The mandate of the Committee involves four oversight roles: audit, financial reporting, investments and organizational risk.
The role of the Governance Committee is to advise and support the Board of Directors on matters of governance policy, and recruit individuals for election to the Board of Directors in keeping with sections 3 and 4 of The Good Samaritan Society Bylaws.
The role of the Quality and Safety Committee is to assure the Board that policy and processes are in place to continuously improve the quality and safety of care and service across all programs and services. This will include promoting a culture of safety and a systematic approach to continuous improvement. In fulfilling its role, the Committee will demonstrate respect for the needs, opinions and preferences of the clients, families and communities served by the Society. The Committee will ensure alignment of quality and safety activities with the requirements of Accreditation.
