Proxy Access Roundtable

The Canadian Coalition for Good Governance (CCGG) is in the process of drafting policy on proxy access, that is, the ability of shareholders to not only elect directors, but also exercise a right to nominate directors and have those nominees placed on the same ballot as management nominees. The intended goal of this new nominee structure is to increase the levels of independence and quality of boards of directors among companies, while providing shareholders a meaningful say in who become directors.
