Board of Directors

Board of Directors

CATSA's Board of Directors is made up of eleven directors, including the chairperson, appointed by the Governor in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of Transport. Of the current eleven directors, two are nominated by the airline industry and two by the airport industry.

The Board has responsibility for the overall stewardship of CATSA. It has a duty to protect the long-term interests of the corporation, safeguard CATSA's assets and to practice due diligence in its decision-making. The Board's key functions and responsibilities are to provide strategic direction, financial oversight, corporate oversight and good governance.

The Board has adopted a Code of Conduct and Ethical Behaviour (PDF) for Directors in order to enhance public confidence and trust in the integrity, objectivity and impartiality of CATSA.

CATSA's Board has three committees with distinct mandates and terms of reference:

The Audit Committee assists the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to financial reporting, performance management, continuous disclosure practices, risk management, internal controls, the audit process and other oversight responsibilities.

Due in large measure to the commitment and dedication of the Board, CATSA is a solid, credible partner in Canadian air transport security and is well positioned to achieve its vision to be a world leader in air transportation security through operational and corporate excellence.
