McMillan’s ESG Strategy Sessions

Events < 1 read

Part Three: ESG Governance in Canada – The need to adapt, communicate, and pivot in a changing business world  

The COVID-19 pandemic and increased concerns over environmental, social, and governance issues have prompted conversations throughout global capital markets. In Canada, the focus on governance continues to grow, and governance is an increasingly dominant factor for all stakeholders, including issuers, financial institutions, regulators, governments, and other market participants.

Join us for the third webinar in our ESG Strategy Sessions to understand and explore governance trends in Canada. This session will discuss governance considerations in Canada for public companies emanating from increased expectations of regulators, proxy advisors, and stakeholders.  We will also focus on ways in which to communicate effectively governance strategies to key stakeholders and tips and trends in evaluating governance of issuers in the context of M&A transactions and by investment funds.

This program qualifies for up to 1 hour Substantive CPD (ON), 1 hour CPD (BC) and 1 hour CLE (QC).
