Organization Info & Bylaws
Nunavut Tourism is governed by an elected, voluntary Board of Directors. In addition, five ex-officio positions are reserved for the Department of Economic Development & Transportation, Territorial Parks, Parks Canada, NTI and Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor). In March of 2012, ED&T decided that it would not have a full-time ex-officio on any NGO Board, and now attends meetings only quarterly.
Directors are elected to represent the following tourism sectors: Hunting, Fishing, Transportation, Adventure & Eco-tourism, Accommodations and Cruises, plus three non-sector positions. Two-year terms are elected on a staggered basis of 4 positions one year and 5 the following year to maintain some Board consistency. The executive of the Board is elected on a yearly basis at a meeting immediately after the Annual General Meeting. The executive consists of three positions – Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer.
Please note that in the fall of 2012, Nunavut Tourism implemented a full electronic voting system for the Board. This gives all members the opportunity to vote for the Board whether they are able to attend the AGM or not.
