Board Governance

Commission Board of Directors

The Commission is governed by a Board of Directors that sets the strategic direction, ensuring organizational performance is in line with strategic priorities and establishing appropriate accountability and transparency mechanisms. Assisted by a group of expert consultants, the Board factors corporate risks into the strategic planning process.

Under the Oil and Gas Activities Act (OGAA), the Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources is the Board Chair, the Commissioner and CEO is the Vice Chair, and a third independent Board member is appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. The Board, under OGAA, has the powers to make regulations respecting aspects of carrying out oil and gas activities.
