Executive Resources

The STF Executive has a legislated duty to manage and regulate the activities of the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation. The Executive must ensure the organization is acting in accordance with its legislated mandate and fiduciary commitments. The day-to-day operations of the Federation, however, are the delegated responsibility of the Executive Director who is appointed by the Executive.


The legislated duty of the Executive involves various roles and responsibilities that are set out more fully in the Federation bylaws and policies adopted by Council as well as the Executive policies, processes, norms and expectations established over time by the Executive itself.

STF Executive policy refers to the formal policy statements that the STF Executive has adopted or amended that express the principles of good governance and guides processes for decision making and implementation of decisions.
