Board committees

The Finance and Audit Committee

Chaired by the Treasurer, the Finance and Audit Committee meets three times a year, or more often, if necessary. The auditor may choose to be present.

The committee oversees and reports to the Board on the Agency’s financial position and operating results as against approved plans and goals. Its work includes reviewing the Agency’s annual budget, liaising with the auditor, monitoring the Agency’s compliance with financial policies and resolutions and reviewing such policies on schedule.

The Governance and Human Resources Committee

Consisting of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer and up to three additional directors, the Governance and Human Resources Committee ensures that the Agency’s governance is strong. The committee meets three times a year, before board meetings, or more often, if necessary.

The committee makes sure that the Agency is abiding by its by-laws and policies and client agreements and by all applicable laws and regulations. The committee advises the board on human-resources issues and governance matters. It ensures that the Agency is well organized and its senior staff competent and appropriately compensated.
