Tradition & Transition is governed by two bodies, each with equal representation from Nunatsiavut and academic partners. The Executive Board assures administrative and financial oversight, while the Project Management Committee offers direction to the principal investigator and staff, reviews individual research projects for approval, and assists in the planning of events, publications and productons. The Project Management Committee is structured to assure representation from all Nunatsiavut communities, youth and Elders, and across a range of research interests.

In addition to the governance structure, Transition & Transition has contracted the Inuit Qaujisarvingat (Inuit Knowledge Centre) at Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami to provide an arms-length evaluation of the partnership at strategic points on the project's timeline.
