The affairs of the Museum are managed and controlled by a board of trustees, consisting of twenty-one trustees. The chair of the Governing Council of the University of Toronto, the president of the University of Toronto, and the director of the Museum are ex officio members. Of the remaining eighteen trustees, fifteen are appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council and three are elected by the members of the Museum. One of the members of the board is appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council to be its chair. The board may appoint one of the members as vice-chair.
Trustees hold office for a term of three years. When an unexpected vacancy occurs, a new trustee is appointed for the remainder of the unexpired term. Trustees are eligible for reappointment for one additional term and may again be eligible for appointment one year after the expiry date of the second term.
