Board of directors

The Board of Directors (the Board) is composed of 24 directors, of whom 20 are elected and 4 are appointed by Office des professions du Québec. Of the 20 elected directors, 14 are physiotherapists and 6 are physical rehabilitation therapists. The chair and members of the Board are elected or appointed to renewable three-year terms. The chair is selected through universal suffrage by secret ballot.
