Chapter Governance

The IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais Chapter is incorporated as a non-profit organization under the Ontario Corporations Act (ONCA). The chapter was incorporated in 2006, after receiving approval from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to register the corporation using the name IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais Chapter.

The IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais Chapter is entirely volunteer-run. The organization's formal membership plays a key role in its governance, including electing the Board of Directors, amending its bylaws, and informing its strategic direction. Only IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais Chapter members in good standing are eligible to vote at the Chapter's annual general meeting and hold office.


IIBA Ottawa-Outaouais is governed by its corporate bylaws. These were last revised and changed by a vote of the chapter membership at the Annual General Meeting in June 2021.
