Corporate Governance

Corporate governance is the structure and processes by which an organization is directed, controlled and held to account.

Corporate governance addresses the Board of Directors and the role the Board plays in ensuring the organization’s short and long-term success consistent with its mandate and mission.


The Governance policies and practices of the Provincial Health Services Authority are compliant with the Governance and Disclosure Guidelines for Governing Boards of British Columbia Public Sector Organizations (Best Practice Guidelines) February 2005 issued by the Crown Agencies and Board Resourcing Office.

Public sector organizations are unique and must evolve governance practices appropriate to their particular circumstances. It is expected, nevertheless, that they will meet the standards and expectations set out in the Best Practice Guidelines to ensure continuing excellence in the governance of public assets and accountability to their stakeholders. 

The expectation of the Government of British Columbia is that individual organizations will report on their governance practices as soon as possible and that all public sector entities will be in a position to meet the disclosure standards set out in the Best Practice Guidelines commencing with the first annual report or service plan filed after April 2006.

The information found on this page and other areas of the PHSA website, is made available as part of our efforts to ensure excellence in governance and accountability.
