Board of Directors

For Students, by Students

As a unified voice for the students, the Ontario Tech Student Union is overseen by a Board of Directors that is comprised of elected student representatives from each faculty of Ontario Tech.

The Board is tasked with preserving the mission of the Student Union in all aspects of the organization.

It is also the responsibility of the Board of Directors to set the limitations of the President while also monitoring performance, evaluate the strategic direction of the organization and approve the annual budget.

As stewards of the organization, it is also the Board of Directors responsibility to insure adherence to the federal Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act.
