VJLS-JH is a non-profit society with registered charity status, and is governed by a Board of Directors. It is made up of a group of dedicated, capable, and willing individuals who share a deep commitment to its mission and vision and who reflect the balance of expertise and perspectives needed to achieve these goals. Elected by the Society (parents of the school and other members) every year, each board member volunteers his/her time and effort to work with and nurture the Head of School and its teachers to set forth and realize its short and long-term objectives. The Board also builds and maintains relationships with other Japanese Canadian and multicultural organizations and with the local neighbourhood in order to enhance mutual support and collaborative programming.
