ISAC is governed by a 15-person community-based Board of Directors.
According to our bylaws, five Board members represent legal clinic caseworkers 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 who live on low incomes and at least five must reside outside Toronto.
Board members represent a diverse range of groups, with representation from Indigenous communities, racialized communities / communities of colour, persons with disabilities, and recipients of income security programs.
Board members serve three-year terms.
