Board Governance

The Chair is responsible for administering the Insurance Act as it relates to the Board and for the overall performance and management of the Board. The Chair is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Board; therefore, the daily operation of the Board is under the leadership of the CEO.

Board members have the powers and privileges of a commissioner under the Inquiries Act and the Regulations under that Act. The Board may make rules governing its procedures and has full jurisdiction to investigate, hear and determine all matters on automobile insurance rate regulation, whether of law or fact.

The Board, when directed by the Chair to sit for any particular purpose or situation, may act as a full Board or as a panel of at least three members of the Board. Generally, the Board reviews rate applications as a panel and considers generic issues as a full Board.
