Who We Are

Homebreadcrumb separatorWHO WE AREbreadcrumb separatorBoard of Directors
GovernanceWith oversight from its Board of Directors, the Invasive Species Centre is managed by a core Secretariat in addition to drawing from the talents of interns, short-term placements, contracted expertise and support from a range of practitioners across Canada. An elastic workforce allows the Invasive Species Centre to grow and contract as needed, and to engage specialized skills on a project-by-project basis.
Board of DirectorsThe Invasive Species Centre is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors who represent stakeholders, including at-risk industries and recreational pursuits, with an interest in protecting Canada from invasive species. The Board Members are drawn from academia, municipalities, First Nations, not-for-profit organizations and industry. The Board benefits from advice provided by ex-officio Board Members who represent the four Government Departments and Agencies that founded the Invasive Species Centre (Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Fisheries and Oceans Canada). The Invasive Species Centre is grateful to the Board of Directors who volunteer their time, and bring their expertise and passion to their work with the Invasive Species Centre.
