About the Board

CIRA’s business and affairs are managed by a 12-person Board of Directors and three Board Advisors. Twelve are elected by CIRA Members and the three Board Advisors with non-voting positions. The Board Advisors include CIRA’s President and CEO, a representative of the Government of Canada, and John Demco, who helped establish the .CA domain and CIRA.

Our Board members come from diverse professional and geographical backgrounds. This allows us to broadly consider Canadian perspectives when working to make .CA your domain name of choice and representing the .CA registry on a global stage.

CIRA strongly believes that Canada is ideally positioned to take a leadership role in the development of the Internet of the future to ensure it continues to be an open and accessible public resource.
