Appointed by the Province

Generally, government appointment policy provides that a member may serve a one-year term, a second two-year term and a final term of three years, for an overall maximum of six years on a particular board.

Eleven people are appointed to the UBC Board of Governors by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Two appointed members are nominated by the University’s alumni association (University Act Part 6 РBoard of Governors).

The Lieutenant Governor in Council may, at any time, remove from office an appointed member of the Board.


The provincial Board Resourcing & Development Office is responsible for:

  • establishing guidelines for all provincial appointments to agencies

  • ensuring that all provincial appointments are made on the basis of merit following an open, transparent and consistent appointment process

  • ensuring that appointees receive appropriate orientation and ongoing professional development with respect to agency governance issues
