Our management team and Board of Directors (the “Board”) are committed to the best principles of corporate governance. We believe good corporate governance is important to our effective performance and plays a significant role in protecting our shareholders’ interests and maximizing shareholder value.
Our corporate governance practices are consistent with all applicable current Canadian regulatory guidelines and standards.
The Board and its Committees
Our Board has overall responsibility for the stewardship of the Company and provides oversight of the Company’s business activities and management. The Board conducts its responsibilities directly and through its three committees: (1) the Audit Committee; (2) the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee; and (3) the Compensation Committee.
Each Board committee has a mandate outlining the committee’s responsibilities and duties, which is reviewed annually. All of the committees are currently 100% independent.
