Governance and Policies
Pickleball Canada is incorporated under the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act. Pickleball Canada's constitution provides for a volunteer leadership structure that is democratically elected by its membership.
All members in good standing have the right to vote at the Annual General Meeting. Notice of the meetings are posted 60 days prior to the meeting as defined in the Pickleball Canada by-laws, which are available HERE. (updated June 2019)
Pickleball Canada reviews its policies at least every four to six years (and incorporates any revisions into its development and business plans). The Pickleball Canada strategic plan is available HERE.
The roles and responsibilities for each officer and each standing committee are defined and included in the Pickleball Canada by-laws. Terms of reference are updated on a regular basis. There are clear lines of authority that describe the delegation of decision-making that pertain to the Board of Directors including the officers of Pickleball Canada, Executive Chairs and Sub Committees.
Pickleball Canada provides a formal orientation and training procedure for new board members. All documents are available to all Board members through an online portal driven by the GOOGLE Team drive program.
