TUC is governed by an elected Board of Directors who meet regularly to make decisions regarding the overall direction of the organisation, the policies of the organisation and to provide oversight. Responsibility for the day to day management of the organisation is delegated by the Board of Directors to the Chief Executive Officer.
TUC strives to be an open and inclusive organisation. We receive informal advice and input daily through contact with TUC members and supporters, with representatives of TUC Chapters and with representatives of the many different partners we work with.
The TUC National Resource Board:
Issues affecting the health and sustainability of Canada’s freshwater ecosystems and their coldwater resources can be complex from a technical, scientific, political and social perspective. To develop as broad and complete a perspective as possible, TUC created its National Resource Board. The National Resource Board has no formal decision making role, but acts as a valuable advisory body to the Board of Directors and senior staff of the organisation. Its volunteer members are highly skilled, highly respected and are each extremely knowledgeable about their field of expertise. The National Resource Board is composed of senior TUC members, policy professionals, and senior science representatives of other organizations. The National Resource Board was instrumental in helping TUC develop its National Conservation Agenda and now provides ongoing policy and program development advice.

Provincial Volunteer Councils:
TUC expects to receive valuable advice and input from the members of our Provincial and Regional Councils. Provincial Councils are composed of senior TUC members who provide mentorship, advice and assistance directly to TUC Chapters. Our Councils also provide valuable input to TUC staff on Chapter needs, Chapter and membership development and on resource and policy issues that arise in their jurisdiction.
Our goal is to have a provincial or regional Council in each geographic area where the number of TUC Chapters warrants it.
Currently, TUC has one volunteer Council, operating in Ontario.
