Article eight of the Manual is devoted to the Board. Article eight, section one is about composition. The board, or board of elders, is the highest functioning authority of a local church. The membership criteria for the board of elders “are the biblical qualifications of elders.”
So far, it appears that women cannot be the senior pastor of a church.
It does, however, look like a church can decide to have women serve on the board by two-thirds majority vote of the membership.
The role of women in ministry within the Alliance Church of Canada seems to be in some kind of transition.
