Committees for the Board of Management

To help the Board fulfil its governance responsibilities, committees and a subcommittee have been established to undertake much of the detailed review of items brought before the Board for its consideration.

The Audit, Governance, Human Resources, and Resources Committees and the Service Transformation Subcommittee apprise the Board of the items that fall within their scope and provide advice and make recommendations to the Board about these items.

Each committee establishes an annual work plan to guide its activities in the upcoming fiscal year. The committees' membership is indicated below, along with hyperlinks to their charters*.
