The Board is the College’s governing authority. The College’s mandate and structure is established by the Social Workers Act.
There are twelve members on the Board; eight are elected by the College’s registrants while the provincial government appoints four as public representatives. The Board meets approximately five times a year to develop policy and plan the implementation of the College’s goals. Board meetings are open to the public. A small staff, under the direction of the College’s Registrar, runs day-to-day operations.
