The Engineers Canada Board Policy Manual has been developed on the basic principles of policy governance. The Board of directors sets policies, delegates implementation, and monitors the results.
The objectives of this manual are:
- To serve as the direction to all volunteers and staff on governance style
- To serve as a reference on Engineers Canada’s organizational policies and structure
- To provide related documents developed by Engineers Canada
The policies are the subject of continual review by the Engineers Canada Board of Directors and the manual is updated following any Board-approved deletions, additions, or revisions.
This manual collects the policies and procedures developed by the Board. The policies recognize that the role of the Board is to give strategic leadership to the organization by representing the regulators, setting policy and direction, and monitoring organizational performance while delegating administrative responsibilities to the chief executive officer.
