October 1, 2007 The Honourable Ed Stelmach, Premier307 Legislature Building Edmonton, Alberta T5K 2B6Dear Premier Stelmach; The Board Governance Review Task Force is pleased to present our final report, At aCrossroads, which captures our review of the province’s agencies, boards and commissions. The report contains our judgments on leading governance practices, including fifteenrecommendations that, taken together, provide a blueprint for the future governance of public agencies in Alberta. We have also included a current inventory of the province’sagencies. The number and scope of the Government of Alberta’s agencies have grown significantly inrecent years. The growth has not been accompanied by a corresponding accountability andtransparency framework. As a result, the province is at a crossroads. It must make basicdecisions about the role of its agencies, and institutionalize a comprehensive governanceframework for its various agencies. The Task Force makes fifteen recommendations. They are united by three basic themes:agencies should be established only after thorough consideration of whether they are thebest vehicle for the task; agencies should have precise mandates and a clear understanding of their relationship with the Government of Alberta; and the appointment of directors shouldbe based on competence. Thank you for this opportunity to examine Alberta’s provincial government agencies.Our motivation was to make recommendations that provide a governance framework thatrecognizes Alberta’s unique needs, establishes a strong basis for the future and stands thetest of time. Yours truly,Neil McCrank, Chair Linda Hohol Allan Tupper
