GDI operates with a 12-member board of governors plus a chairperson representing each of the 12 MN–S regions.

Each board member goes through a three-step process for appointment that includes nomination at a regional council meeting, followed by ratification and approval by the provincial Métis council, and approval by the Saskatchewan Minister of Advanced Education.

The board of governors oversees the institute’s direction and is responsible for its operation and governance.
