Board Policy

Youth Science Canada began reviewing its approach to governance and governance policy in August 2004 with the assistance of Catherine Raso of CMR Governance Consulting. The Board of Directors has developed a complete set of governance policies based on the Policy Governance model of Dr. John Carver.
