Each of the Regional Municipalities of York, Halton, Peel and Durham and the City of Toronto is entitled to provide, on a rotating basis, the names of three candidates, and the Board appoints one of the three candidates for each available position as a Director.

  • The Board ensures that long-term goals and the strategies necessary to achieve them are established and are consistent with the GTAA’s vision.
  • The Board also ensures that the necessary systems are in place to manage the risks associated with the GTAA’s business and to monitor and measure management’s performance in carrying out the Corporation’s objectives.
