The CRRF’s strategic direction is vested in a Board of Directors consisting of a Chairperson and up to 11 additional members. Every effort is made to have a Board that includes members from across the country.
An Executive Director, who serves as Chief Executive Officer and an ex-officio member of the Board, manages the CRRF’s daily operations. The Governor-in-Council, acting on the recommendation of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration and the Minister for Multiculturalism, appoints all members of the Board and the Executive Director.
The Canadian Race Relations Foundation Act states that the Board of Directors must meet a minimum of twice a year. The Board meets three times a year in a different province or Territory, where feasible.
