Board of Governors

The primary role of the Lower Canada College Board of Governors is to establish the school’s overall strategy and policy objectives, review and respond to the administration’s plans to achieve these objectives, and review and assess the school’s performance.

The Board of Governors meets on a monthly basis throughout the school year and as otherwise required. Members, who are appointed by the Corporation, serve up to two three-year terms and participate on standing committees.

The Lower Canada College Foundation was established in 1992 to oversee the school’s endowment funds. In addition, the Foundation evaluates requests from the school for funds for student financial assistance and assists with fundraising, including planned giving and the U.S. Friends of Lower Canada College, Inc.


LCC’s Corporation was established in 1935 when Dr. Fosbery, the school’s founder and first headmaster, endowed the school to its alumni upon his retirement. The Corporation was born and, as such, owns the school.

Today, LCC’s Corporation has some 200 members. Although there are no set criteria for membership—other than being among the alumni—traditionally, one must have served the school in some capacity. The Chair of the Corporation must be a Board member, and is traditionally the Board Chair.

The Annual General Meeting of the Corporation takes place in the fall to receive and adopt the financial statements of the school and the Headmaster’s Annual Report.
