The Constance Bay Community Market (CBCM) is a member of Farmers’ Markets Ontario (FMO) and operates under their guidelines. Membership in the FMO provides the CBCM with resources and liability insurance to help ensure the sustainability of the market.

The CBCM receives direction from Ottawa Public Health and is subject to periodic inspection to ensure the CBCM and its vendors are adhering to regulations governing the safety, measurement, packaging, and labelling of food products.

The CBCM is governed by a volunteer board of directors of up to 13 members and is managed and operated by the Board plus a group of support volunteers and a Market Manager. Management and all other support activities are contracted by the Board. The Market Manager is not a member of the Board, but attends board meetings to advise the Board on issues relating to the promotion and operation of the market.
