CAAT did not begin with a bicameral governance system. The plan was put in place in 1967 by the Board of Governors of the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology. In 1994, governance changes were introduced to gain greater control over decisions on the direction of the plan and its investments. At that time, the governance plan was extended to representatives of the Ontario College Administrative Staff Association (OCASA) and to academic and support representatives of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). These Ontario groups and colleges signed a sponsorship and trust agreement that came into effect in 1995. Since then, the plan has been managed by the Independent Pension Board and co-trustee under a bicameral system.
