Shareholder Democracy Summit - INAUGURAL Summit
The Summit was an unprecedented gathering of all the key stakeholders who have a role to play in the regulation and administration of the processes by which the holders of shares of Canadian public companies vote their shares at shareholder meetings.
The current processes do not adequately serve the interests of participants in the Canadian capital markets. The reasons for this are many and varied, and are in large measure due to the unprecedented growth in the volume and complexity of transactions in the capital markets in the recent past.
The Summit process, which is continuing, is a unique and unprecedented opportunity for all stakeholders to gather and share vital information with the objective of improving the voting process to ensure that it can serve appropriately as regulators and public interest groups place increasing importance on shareholder democracy.
"This unprecedented gathering of policymakers and stakeholders will ensure that everyone who plays a role in the system will have a voice," says CSCS Chairman of the Board, David Masse. "Our ultimate goal is to have the views of all constituents addressed in effective solutions."
