Governance and accountability

At CIHI, we rigorously apply good governance and accountability practices. We work hard to achieve value for money by using resources responsibly and measuring our success indicators effectively.

We have a 16-member Board of Directors that links federal, provincial and territorial governments with non-governmental health groups. Board members represent all health sectors and regions of Canada, and their strategic guidance steers the work we do.

The Board of Directors Governance Handbook provides an overview of the organization and the structures and methods by which the organization is governed.

Our funders

Our primary funders include Health Canada and the provincial and territorial ministries of health. Both provide expertise to complement and contribute to our work, which helps us achieve our mandate.

Neutral and independent role

Although we play an integral role in providing relevant and reliable data and analyses to policy-makers in Canada’s health systems, we are neutral and objective in fulfilling our mandate. We neither create nor take positions on policy.
