Sound corporate governance

IDRC is guided by an international
Board of Governors, which provides our strategic direction, reviews all our activities, and approves budgets. The Canadian government appoints governors on the basis of their concern for, and expertise in science, management, and development issues.
The chairperson of IDRC’s board presents an annual report to Parliament through the Minister of International Development.
IDRC’s day-to-day operations are overseen by the President, who is the chief executive officer. He also sits on the Board. The Centre Management Committee supports the President in setting objectives, overseeing programs, and directing staff.
