Board of Directors

When our business structure changed in January 2000, we were no longer a Commission. Instead, GSU became a business corporation under the rules of the Ontario Business Corporations Act. We are governed by a Board of Directors, appointed by our Shareholder, the City of Greater Sudbury.

The Mayor of the City of Greater Sudbury (or a designate), two Councillors, and two community members sit on the Boards of both Greater Sudbury Utilities and Greater Sudbury Hydro.
