External Advisory Board

CanVECTOR's governance structure includes an External Advisory Board (EAB). This board provides non-binding recommendations to the SSC. The EAB is comprised of 2 trained patient partners, key stakeholder representatives, and 3 senior non-VTE researchers who are external to the Network.

The EAB’s mandate complements the SSC’s:

  1. Provide advice on the Network's overall strategic plan and objectives;


  2. Provide advice on Network’s direction;
  3. Provide advice on Network operations and management to ensure that appropriate policy and financial decisions are made and implemented.
