This new organizational structure for the IRCC is a flat, horizontal and circular structure, i.e. non-linear and not pyramid-shaped. Such structure shall provide all units with adequate proximity in status and decision making as well as proximity to the director general (DG).
Offices are responsible for coordination and documentation. They are the display channels and tools of the center’s products and outputs, most of which are produced by the institutes. Within the center’s machine -where institutes are its engine- these offices can be considered the center’s drive arms, wheels, lights and display boards. The offices are the units through which the center’s outputs are displayed.
