TORONTO, March 1, 2016 - The Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries ("CSCS") announces that the nominations are now open for the 2016 Excellence in Governance Awards/Prix d'excellence en gouvernance (EGs). The winners for the awards will be announced and celebrated at a dinner and ceremony on November 15, 2016 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto, Ontario.

The CSCS EG Awards recognize the important contribution that governance professionals make in terms of best practices that build and sustain shareholder and stakeholder value in Canada. The awards also underscore the critical role that good governance plays in sustaining the value of Canada's public companies, crown corporations, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations, and in contributing to the competitiveness of Canada's economy and its capital markets.

The Excellence in Governance Awards jury panel is composed of seasoned and well-respected governance thought leaders from across Canada. CSCS has carefully selected the judges to ensure representation from all aspects of the governance community including shareholder representatives, regulatory experts, leading academics and practitioners.

Candidates eligible for nomination include individuals and/or teams of individuals who play a role in the governance of their organizations. The deadline for nominations is May 31, 2016, and the shortlist of finalists for the awards will be announced in June 2015.

CSCS will seek nominations in the following award categories:

Best Practices in Sustainability and ESG

Best Practices in Pay for Performance

CSCS expects that the recognition that the winners, nominees and their organizations will gain from these awards will raise more awareness for the key role played by governance professionals, further the reputation of their organizations, and inspire others to follow their example.
