The GTAA is a private, non-share capital corporation, responsible for managing and operating Lester B. Pearson International Airport. It is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors. This board consists of five individuals from the Regional Municipalities of Durham, Halton, Peel, York and the City of Toronto, two from the Federal Government, one from the Ontario government and seven other individuals selected through a search process.
When required, the GTAA will request Halton to nominate up to three citizens, one of whom is then appointed by the GTAA for a three-year term. The GTAA by-law also permits Directors to be re-nominated for an additional three-year term, to a maximum of three terms (or nine years) of service. Requirements for candidates for the Board of Directors position are outlined in the GTAA’s by-law. In general, individuals with senior level (“C-suite”) executive experience and a strong community involvement are preferred.
The term for the current Director from Halton Region will conclude in May 2021.
