Governance

In 2012 the board tasked management with revising and rewriting its general bylaws. The new administrative bylaws reflect the latest best practices for governance and are intended to increase the business’s agility. They received ministerial approval on May 28, 2013.

The president and CEO is responsible for defining and implementing the organization’s strategic orientations, objectives, and fundamental values. Strategic orientations are based on operating as an economic entity so as to maximize value for partners (levels of government) and stakeholders (customers, employees, general public). Reporting directly to board of directors, the president and CEO is also in charge of the financial performance of the overall operations and business, including revenues and expenses, financial statements, and monitoring of the chief indicators of customer value.

The president and CEO is assisted by the vice-presidents of operations, marketing and development, information technology, finance, and infrastructures.

Board of Directors

Company management is assumed by the Board of Directors of the Aéroport de Québec inc. (AQi) which sets guidelines and monitors their implementation. The board is composed of not less than 13 members and not more than 15, and together they represent the regional business community.

Members bring a wide variety of expertise to the board from air transportation, aviation, business, trade, finance, administration, law, management, engineering, and labor organization, to consumer advocacy.

Combining members' expertise and putting forward their complementary range of skills, they give the organization the necessary momentum to accomplish its mission and vision: to become one of the ten busiest airports in Canada by 2020.
