Governance

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees exercises the executive and administrative powers and duties, including the selection of the secretary and treasurer and our external auditors, with both appointments approved by the Members of the Authority.

Members of the Authority
The Members of the Authority are elected officials appointed by the regional boards in each regional district in BC. The number of MFA Members (currently 39) is based on the population of the regional districts. The Members of the Authority represent all 28 regional districts. The Members meet twice a year, once at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held before March 31st each year, and again in the fall, in conjunction with the annual Union of BC Municipalities Convention. At these meetings, the Members review requests for financing and authorize the issue and sale of securities. At the AGM, the Members elect ten Trustees, including the Chair and Vice-Chair. Four Trustees must be from Metro Vancouver, one from the Capital Regional District, and the other five from the remaining regional districts. Regional district member and alternate member appointments are due by the last day of February each year. Appointment notifications are accepted via email
