It has been a couple of decades since governance guidelines were published through the Dey Report. Canadian business has changed significantly over the years and the role of the board has also evolved with new concepts of corporate purpose and director duties surfacing. Fueled by the rapid pace of technological innovation and against the backdrop of a global pandemic, businesses face new risks, challenges and opportunities.
In recognition of that evolution, several organizations have announced new governance guidelines to be released in 2021. The first to be released was “360º Governance, Where are the Directors in a World in Crisis” by Peter Dey and Sarah Kaplan.
The TMX Group and the ICD have constituted The Committee on the Future of Corporate Governance in Canada to oversee the creation of updated guidance with respect to best practices in corporate governance in Canada. The Committee plans to publish an interim report in 2021. And, finally, the International Standards Organization has released new standards related to corporate governance in September.
Join the GPC Edmonton Chapter to complete the discussion we started on June 23rd regarding the 360 Governance Report and to share each others’ reactions to the proposals, the trends and what each organization is doing to prepare itself and their respective boards for potential changes in governance practice. In this session the facilitators will cover guidelines 9 thru 13.
Consider some preparation with the following:
Tracey Bliss: Assistant Corporate Secretary, Capital Power
Aaron Friedenthal:, VP Legal Services and Assistant Corporate Secretary, ATB Financial
Toby Tamayo: Lead, Governance and Board Affairs, ATB Financial
See you there!
