How appointments work

Several of the organizations for which the ministers have appointment responsibilities have been established under land claims and enabling legislation to carry out functions associated with resource management and dispute resolution. Many play a particularly significant role in the North. Others have an advisory role to the ministers. These organizations (boards, panels, commissions) are physically located across the country and vary in scope.

Members of these organizations are appointed in one of 2 ways:

Order in Council (OIC)/Governor in Council appointments

Ministerial appointments
