Board of Directors

Meet our directors and learn about their mandate.


Our board of directors is governing body between annual or special meetings of our membership. It is mandated to conduct the business of the Canadian Chamber and to oversee our financial transactions (standard fiduciary responsibility). The board of directors is also responsible for the implementation, interpretation and promotion of policies approved by our membership.

Join Our Board 

In accordance with our bylaws, each year, our Nominating and Governance Committee prepares a slate of the names of its nominees for:n the Chair, the Vice-Chair, the Treasurer and the appropriate number of other directors whose terms of office will cease as of our AGM. As outlined in our Corporate Governance Manual, the slate of nominees must conform to our selection policies and must consider the regional, cultural, gender and linguistic balance of the board.
