Anne McLellan and Dr. Indira Samarasekera helped create the report, Charting the Future of Canadian Governance: A Principled Approach to Navigating Rising Expectations for Boards of Directors. Anne and Indira are members of the 13-member Committee on the Future of Corporate Governance in Canada, a joint initiative of TMX Group and the Institute of Corporate Directors.
The report calls for the strengthening of Canadian corporate governance to address the challenges and new risks that organizations face today, and highlights the imperative for boards to address rising expectations in a multi-stakeholder world. The report is the product of more than two years of work and critical evaluation by the committee, and represents a principled approach to advancing the state of corporate governance in Canada.
The committee's report is designed to provide guidance for directors of companies and organizations of all sizes across Canada’s business community, reflecting their diverse needs and resources, including Canada’s unique public venture market that enables small companies to become public companies.
