We are members of the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance (CCGG). The CCGG is the pre-eminent corporate governance organization in Canada and is uniquely positioned to effect change as the voice of Canadian Institutional shareholders.
Representing the interests of institutional investors, CCGG promotes good governance practices in Canadian public companies and the improvement of the regulatory environment to best align the interests of boards and management with those of their shareholders, and to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of the Canadian capital markets.
This relationship is beneficial to us as it allows us to identify priorities related to ESG issues and work alongside other key industry players to promote both active ownership and the appropriate disclosure on ESG issues as well as engage with board of directors of 40 to 50 companies per year.
