Our Industry Boards

Each of GS1 Canada’s boards are an integral part of our robust governance structure. They are composed of industry leaders who are committed to the adoption of GS1 global standards.

Each of our five boards identify strategic initiatives and address non-competitive issues through the implementation of non-proprietary standards and solutions.

  • To identify and recommend strategic initiatives that address Canadian industry sector specific business requirements in the value chain.
  • To advocate GS1 standards and services.
  • To represent and address the sectors or channels in which their organization operates.
  • To direct and sponsor their organization’s participation in GS1 Canada committees, work groups and initiatives.
  • To develop a business plan that addresses industry specific business requirements and define solutions for implementation by the Canadian community based on GS1 global standards.
  • To ensure strategies can be adopted by both multinational organizations as well as small to medium enterprises.
  • To ensure that all standard requirements are submitted to the GS1 Global Standards Management Process approval process on behalf of Canadian industry.
  • To participate in the annual GS1 Benchmarking Study.
