Committees of the Board

Committees are established to strengthen the Board’s oversight capabilities and support TOH in achieving its Strategic Plan.  Each committee is accountable to the Board who approves each committee’s Terms of Reference. Committee composition is determined by the Board, except where required by legislation. The Board currently has four standing committees.

Development Committee

The Development Committee ensures that key development projects contribute to the modernization of the delivery of health care to our community and align with the Hospital’s academic and research mandate, across all campuses and satellite locations. The committee also provides oversight of environmental stewardship initiatives across TOH to promote sustainability, and minimize environmental impact of hospital operations activities and services.

Finance and Audit Committee

The Finance and Audit Committee is responsible for overseeing and providing guidance on financial management, digital solutions, and business requirements of TOH. The committee ensures the necessary resources are available to support the delivery of healthcare. It also establishes internal and external audit plans and reviews related reports and recommendations from Management. 

Governance & Partnerships Committee

The Governance and Partnerships Committee ensures the Board has the appropriate governance framework in place to enable the Board’s activities and support the fulfillment of its duties and responsibilities. This committee also provides oversight in the areas of education, innovation and research and healthcare partnerships.

Quality & People Committee
