Corporate Governance & Board of Directors

The CEO and executive team are responsible for the day-to-day operation of BCLC.

BCLC is overseen by a Board of Directors of up to nine members appointed by Government. The CEO and executive team are invited to attend all regular Board meetings. In accordance with best practices, the Board also meets in camera, without management present, before the end of each regular meeting.

The Board reports to the Attorney General, the Honourable David Eby. Throughout the fiscal year, BCLC reports regularly to Government including via submission the Service Plan, Annual Service Plan Report and Statements of Financial Information.   

The Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch is responsible for the overall integrity of gambling and horse racing in British Columbia, including regulation of BCLC.

BCLC complies with Government disclosure requirements contained in the Best Practice Guidelines – BC Governance and Disclosure Guidelines for Governing Boards of Public Sector Organizations (2005).
