Governance in Focus

The complexity of corporate governance requirements in law and practice continues to grow and, in turn, so does the role of governance professionals. Issues and matters arise that require individuals to draw upon a wide range of knowledge and industry principles, and the Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries (CSCS) is that leading resource.

The CSCS Annual Corporate Governance Conference, now in its 18th year, provides a forum for networking and an invaluable opportunity to exchange ideas, discuss current challenges and exchange best practices.

This year’s conference theme, Governance in Focus, brings together leading governance experts and practitioners to provide a perspective on both sides of governance. Our featured keynote speakers include:

  • Discussing the Evolving Role of the Corporate Secretary: Carol Hansell, Founder and Senior Partner, Hansell LLP; Mary Jordan, Chair, Vancouver Airport Authority; Dick Auchinleck, Chairman, Telus; Margie Marikh, Former Chair, Mountain Equipment Co-op
  • How to Get Cyber Ready with: Robert Gordon, Executive Director, Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange (CCTX); Ryan Kazanciyan, Chief Security Architect, Tanium, Joan Conley, Senior Vice-President and Corporate Secretary, Nasdaq OMX Group Inc.
  • Striking a Balance Between Rules and Principles: Andrew Fastow, former Chief Financial Officer of Enron Corporation; Richard Leblanc, Associate Professor, Law, Governance & Ethics, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, York University; Mike Garvey, FCPA, FCA, ICD.D, Chairman Kelvin Storage Inc.; Errol Mendes, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa
  • Challenges, Practices and Principles That Are Shaping Today’s Boardroom: David Beatty, Professor, The Rotman School of Management and Conway Director, Clarkson Centre for Business Ethics and Board Effectiveness; Peter Dey, Chair, Paradigm Capital Inc.; Anna Tudela, VP, Diversity, Regulatory Affairs & Corporate Secretary, Goldcorp Inc.

With the concurrent streamed sessions and workshops, speakers will discuss and address the demands of the board, achieving diversity and inclusion, hostile takeovers, the role of the corporate secretary and board, ESG disclosure, privacy and compliance, risk management oversight, building a subsidiary framework and investor communications. Our goal is to provide in depth insights that have you discussing, analyzing and even debating all of these issues – and more!
