Governance

CITA is both an Institute within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of the University of Toronto, and a non-profit corporation (CITA Inc.). Relations between the two CITAs are governed by a Letter of Agreement between CITA Inc. and the University of Toronto that was signed in 1989. The CITA Council consists of seven members, five selected from the CITA Inc. membership of over 50 researchers in co-operation with the Canadian Astronomical Society (of which they must also be members), and two ex officio: the Director of CITA and the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of the University of Toronto or their designate.
