Concordia University is a duly constituted corporation, incorporated pursuant to a special Statute of the Quebec legislature and to various documents pertaining to its change of name. The Act of Incorporation has been amended over the years to provide for modifications to the size of the Board of Governors and the University’s borrowing capacity. For ease of reference, those modifications have been merged into a consolidated Charter.
The University Charter empowers the Board of Governors to establish rules regarding its membership and mode of election as well as rules to govern the general operations of the Board of Governors and its committees and to provide for the composition and powers of Senate, if appropriate. Those rules are enshrined in the By-Laws. Special By-Law “E” sets out the Board’s borrowing capacity while Special By-Law “F” addresses the indemnification of Governors and Officers.
