The federal component will be a charitable, not-for-profit corporation, established under the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act.

Each provincial/territorial component shall be an independent, charitable, not-for-profit society, established under the laws of the specific province or territory.  While each component may have different priorities and organizing strategies, depending upon the specific circumstances in each jurisdiction, each will adopt and follow the National Trust principles, and will adopt (to the extent possible) the NTLC Consitution and Bylaws.

 

NTLC GOVERNANCE

Each provincial/territorial entity shall be membership based, and governed by a Board of Trustees elected from and by the membership.  Members may be individuals, families, businesses or other organizations.  Members (over age 16) have the right to vote on resolutions placed before the membership and for the Board of Trustees.  Those aged 19 or over may also stand for election.  All members receive additional privileges, as determined by the Board.

The Board of Trustees oversees the operations of the society on behalf of the membership.  The number of trustees for each provincial/territorial society is determined by the membership of each entity.  Trustees are elected for a three-year term, with a limit of three consecutive terms.

The national entity (corporation) is governed by a Board of Trustees comprising one representative (the Executive Director/CEO unless otherwise arranged by the Executive Director) of each provincial/territorial component as well as a representative (Executive Director/CEO) of the national entity and two members at large, appointed by the other trustees.  Appointments to the Board of Trustees are reviewed as required, and at least on a three year basis.

A National Advisory Board, comprising individuals with national/international prominence and/or expertise will be appointed by the Board of Trustees, and will provide advice and guidance to the Board of Trustees.
