Board Policies

Board Policies clearly define the scope and limits within which the Library operates. Board Policies are used to provide effective parameters and direction for decisions and actions undertaken by the Board, management, and staff.

Statutory Policies

(a) The Board shall establish, as Board Policies, those policies required by the Act and the Regulations. The Board shall only revise, repeal, and replace such Board Policies as is permitted by the Act and the Regulations.

(b) The Board shall file a report with the Minister that contains the Board Policies established pursuant to this section, and when the Board revises any Board Policy established pursuant to this section, the Board shall immediately file with the Minister a report of that revision.

Other Board Policies

The Board may establish such other Board Policies as it considers appropriate from time to time, and may revise, repeal, and replace those Board Policies as it considers appropriate from time to time.

Defining and Interpreting Board Policies

In these policies, the following words have these meanings:

Administrative Policies

The Board may direct the Chief Executive Officer to establish, revise, repeal, and replace such Administrative Policies as the Chief Executive Officer considers appropriate from time to time. The Chief Executive Officer shall inform the Board promptly following the establishment, revision, repeal, or replacement of each such policy. Each such policy (and each revision, repeal or replacement of it) is subject to review and approval by the Board (in each case with such revisions as the Board in its discretion considers appropriate).
