Each director, other than the Chairperson and the Chief Executive Officer, shall hold office during pleasure for a term not exceeding four years that will ensure, so far as possible, the expiration in any one year of the terms of office of not more than one half of the directors of the Corporation.

A director is eligible for reappointment on the expiration of his term of office. If a director is not appointed to take office on the expiration of the term of an incumbent director, other than the Chief Executive Officer and the Chairperson, the incumbent director continues in office until his successor is appointed.

A director ceases to hold office on death, on removal from office by the Minister with the authorization of the Governor in Council, on suspension by the Governor in Council pursuant to applicable law for so long as that suspension lasts, on ceasing to be qualified to be a director as set forth under applicable law or under the By-laws, on receipt of a written resignation by the Corporation, or if a time is specified in such resignation at the time so specified, whichever is later. A copy of any written resignation thus received by the Corporation shall be forwarded to the Clerk of the Privy Council within fifteen days of receipt.

The Auditor General of Canada shall be appointed by the Governor in Council as the auditor, or a joint auditor, of each Crown corporation, unless the Auditor General waives the requirement of being so appointed.

The Governor in Council may make regulations prescribing the criteria to be applied in selecting an auditor for appointment pursuant to subsection (1).

An auditor of a Crown corporation is eligible for re-appointment on the expiration of the auditor’s appointment.
