More and more issuers are adopting the CSA’s new notice-and-access rules.  The notice-and-access regime facilitates a paperless proxy process, offering the promise of savings, both financial and environmental. 

Our presenters will address key issues, including:

  • The core elements of changes to delivery and communications requirements for proxy voting under securities legislation
  • Corporate law requirements and how they work with the new notice-and-access provisions
  • Issuers' experiences so far with the notice-and-access regime
  • What is ahead?  Lessons learned from the first proxy season using notice-and-access

Presenters:
