Board of Directors

Printer-friendly version

CIHI's 16-member Board of Directors is proportionately constituted to create a balance among health sectors and regions of Canada. It links federal, provincial and territorial governments with non-governmental health-related groups.

CIHI's Board serves as a national coordinating council for health information in Canada and in so doing fulfills four key roles: stewardship, advisory, fiduciary, and monitoring.

The Board of Directors Governance Handbook provides an overview of the organization and the structures and methods by which the organization is governed.
