Advisory Board

The Population Data BC Advisory Board provides direction for achieving our mission as an organisation. It plays a critical role in guiding the Scientific Director and Managing Director in the development of PopData's infrastructure as well as advising on core operational issues such as strategy, policy, funding, privacy and security.

The Board convenes five times a year (and as needed), and is comprised of leaders in the research field, with representation from multiple institutions.
