The Board of Directors is a group of CCPA members who represent the interests of the CCPA membership in all provinces and territories in Canada. The Board governs the Association by making policy which determines its long-term direction. Each Director has a maximum of two two-year terms on the Board and must either reside or work in the province/territory s/he represents.
One Director represents each region of Canada. Exceptions are New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario where there is one Francophone and one Anglophone Director from each province. The Director for British Columbia also represents the Yukon, the Director for Alberta also represents the Northwest Territories, and the Director for Manitoba also represents Nunavut.
