ISAC is governed by a volunteer 15-person community-based Board of Directors.
According to ISAC’s bylaws, five Board members represent legal clinic staff in each of the four regions of Ontario, with one “at-large” representative. The remaining ten come from the broader community. Of those, at least five must be people with past or present lived experience of poverty and/or past or present lived experience of disability and at least five must reside outside of the GTA.
Board members represent a diverse range of groups, with representation from Indigenous and Francophone communities, racialized communities / communities of colour, persons with disabilities, and recipients of income security programs.
Board members serve three-year terms.
