Under the University of Ottawa Act (1965), the Board of Governors is responsible for the University's overall governance and management. In practical terms, the Board makes the financial decisions and implements the policies and procedures that the University needs to operate efficiently.
In addition, the Board appoints and replaces the President, the Vice-Presidents, the directors and the senior managers of the University; it also sets the duties, salaries, and benefits of principal officers and of both the academic and administrative staffs. Finally, the Board can strike committees to help it exercise its powers.
