The Commission consists of a Chairperson, two Vice-Chairpersons, and up to 10 regional Commissioners.

The Chairperson sets the agenda for and presides over Commission meetings. The Chairperson also serves as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Commission. With the support of the Secretary General, the Senior Legal Counsel, and Senior Management, the Chairperson oversees the operations of the organization and directs the work of Commission staff.

The two Vice-Chairpersons focus on the activities of the broadcasting and telecommunications sectors. The regional Commissioners bring the views of their respective provinces and territories to the CRTC. Commissioners are entitled to vote at Commission meetings and participate in the decision making process. Commissioners are appointed by the Governor in Council for a term of five years.

The Secretary General supports the CRTC’s operational activities and reports directly to the Chairperson. Under the Lobbying Act, the Chairperson, Vice-Chairpersons, Secretary General, Senior General Counsel and Chief of Consumer, Research and Communications are designated public office holders.
