In June 1974, the B.C. government passed the Institute of Technology (British Columbia) Act, which made BCIT an autonomous educational facility, independent of the B.C. Ministry of Education. The first meeting of the BCIT Board of Governors was held on July 31, 1974.
BCIT is administered under the authority of the Minister of Advanced Education by a Board of Governors consisting of:
At least Eight members appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.
- One member of the faculty elected by the faculty members.
- One member of the support staff elected by the support staff.
- Two students elected by the students.
The President of BCIT and the Chair of the Education Council are non-voting members of the Board.
