A Board of five to seven Directors governs the policies and strategic priorities of the Commission and ensures the funding received is spent efficiently by reporting to the Legislature through the Minister of Justice and Attorney General. It also assures the public that the actual operation of the legal aid system is separate from the government which is responsible for public prosecutions. Members of the board are appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.
