Nomination process

Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders is held within the four months following the end of CRCD’s fiscal year. The purpose of the meeting is to receive and consider the financial statements and independent auditor’s report, elect 2 directors, appoint the independent auditor and set its remuneration, consider and dispose of any business that may properly be brought before the meeting.

At least 21 days, but not more than 50 days, before the annual general meeting, each shareholder receives a notice of meeting accompanied by the summary of the audited financial statements as at December 31 and a reply card that allows them to obtain free copies of the Company’s full financial reports.

Shareholders who cannot attend annual general meetings may be represented by the proxy of their choice using the form of proxy included in the notice of meeting package.

The election process

Shareholders wishing to submit their nomination for one of the two elected directorships must obtain a nomination form according to the terms and conditions set out in the Nomination Process memorandum sent to all shareholders.

All nominations must meet the eligibility criteria set out on the Nomination Form. The Governance and Human Resources Committee will review eligible nomination requests and recommend to CRCD two nominees for whom to vote proxies that contain no shareholder voting instructions. This process ensures that the Board of Directors is composed of members with a broad mix of experience, expertise, training and geographic representation.

  • Be or become a shareholder of CRCD
