The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that the process by which members are appointed to the CBC/Radio-Canada Board of Directors is independent, merit-based and results in the recommendation of high-quality candidates.
The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage announced today the members of the newly reconstituted Independent Advisory Committee, which will recommend candidates for potential appointments to the CBC/Radio-Canada Board of Directors, as some current members of the board are now nearing the end of their mandate. This independent and non-partisan body has a mandate to conduct a selection process for Governor in Council appointments and provide the Minister of Canadian Heritage with recommendations of highly qualified candidates that respect gender parity and truly reflect Canada’s diversity.
The advisory committee will be guided by published, merit-based criteria in order to identify Canadians who would make a significant contribution to the work of the Board of Directors of CBC/Radio-Canada.
The members of the Advisory Committee are:
Under the leadership of the former non-partisan independent advisory committee established in 2017, three selection processes were held in 2017–18 for the positions of President/Chief Executive Officer, Chairperson and members of the board, and resulted in the recommendation of highly qualified candidates.
“I would like to thank all the members of the advisory committee for accepting this role. I am confident they will advise us in selecting the right people to guide our national broadcaster. Canadians trust that the Board of Directors of CBC/Radio-Canada has a firm grasp on the ever-evolving broadcasting and digital environment. The advisory committee members will help us identify candidates that are the best in class and have a deep understanding of Canada as well as the broadcasting world.”
—The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage
