Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance

Destination Canada is led by a Board of Directors comprised of a maximum of twelve (12) directors. Directors are appointed based on the full range of skills, experience and competencies required to add value to Destination Canada’s decisions on strategic opportunities and risks and to provide effective oversight.

The Governor-in-Council appoints the Chair of the Board, as well as the President & CEO. The Minister of Industry, with the approval of the Governor-in-Council, appoints the other directors.

The Board is comprised of:

  • The Board Chair
  • The President & CEO of Destination Canada
  • The DM of Industry Canada (ex officio)
  • Up to 9 additional directors.

Destination Canada is privileged to have tourism industry leaders and experts provide advice and insight to the President & CEO and to the Board of Directors through our Board Advisory Committees.
