The 13 – member board consists of representatives from East, West, Central and Far North sub regions, encompassing Cree, Dene, and Metis representation overall. Their role as a governance board is to provide guidance and overall direction to the Corporation. General matters are addressed at the Annual General Meetings. More specific issues are addressed at meetings of the Executive Committee, comprised of a select few members of the Board.

Board members are often selected at the community level, allowing the audience to dictate its’ representation on the board.
