Board of Governors

Canadore College is governed by a Board of Governors comprised of up to 12 volunteers from the external community appointed by the Board and the Lieutenant Governor in Council plus the College President and 4 elected volunteers from Canadore’s internal community on behalf of  our students, faculty, support staff and administration.

The Board of Governors is responsible for setting the college vision, strategic directions, and overall goals and outcomes; establishing governance structures to enable the achievement of expected institutional outcomes; delegating to the president accountability for the operation of the college; approving the college’s annual business plan, budget and annual report; and assessing the attainment of corporate goals and outcomes.
