Board of Directors
The CAO has established a skills-based board governance model. Elected directors are filled through a Nominating Committee process which evaluates and recommends candidates based on their skills and experience against the competency criteria established in Schedule D to the Administrative Agreement.
The Board of Directors provides part-time strategic direction to the organization’s business and operations to fulfil the CAO’s legislative and regulatory obligations. The Board operates according to a Code of Conduct (Schedule E in the Administrative Agreement) that governs the conduct of the CAO’s Board of Directors. It sets out guidelines for avoiding and disclosing conflicts of interest and keeping information confidential.
The Board is accountable for the performance of the CAO to the Minister of Government and Consumer Services through the Board Chair.
The Board has a standing Audit and Risk Committee, an ad hoc Nominating Committee, HR & and Governance Committee, Outreach Committee, and a Tribunal Advisory Panel comprised of 3 of the CAO Board members.
