Council of Jurisdiction

TCR was founded by North American states, provinces and territories, with jurisdictional representatives serving on our Board of Directors for over a decade. In 2021, TCR introduced an innovative governance structure that will enable us to drive more climate ambition and action in North America. TCR established a smaller independent board and transitioned the jurisdictional representatives onto the Council of Jurisdictions.

The council serves as an advisory body and ensures that TCR continues as a powerful bipartisan platform for showcasing and supporting sub-national climate leadership.
