All requirements regarding initial appointment must be met throughout the three-year tenure of office. Failure to maintain public trust, a breach of privacy or continued absence which affects the efficient administration of the Board Centre could lead to termination of the appointment.

Members' or chairpersons' appointments will be jeopardized if they are charged with a criminal offence while in office, including an offence under the EI Act. After a verdict is reached, the members will continue on the Board if they are vindicated but will be terminated if they are found to have committed the offence.

Chairpersons and panel members are responsible to inform their respective appointing authority should they resign.

In the case of chairpersons, the Minister may recommend to the Governor in Council that the appointment be terminated for cause.

The respective Commissioner may, on behalf of the Commission, terminate the appointment of a panel member.
