Our Team – Board Members

TCU is governed by a Board of Directors who meet at least quarterly to monitor the progress and direction of the company. The Board currently consists of nine Board members, five being Indigenous. Our Indigenous Board Directors are leaders from several different Indigenous Communities who bring a wealth of practical knowledge and experience to the Board in addition to representing the people of their regions. Our Non-Indigenous Board members bring a range of valuable professional skills to the Board. With backgrounds in Finance, Governance, Compliance and Government Relations they each contribute significantly to the direction of TCU.
