Earlier this week, the Globe and Mail published its annual report on corporate governance among Canadian issuers.
Specifically, Board Games 2013 includes articles on topics such as the push for director term limits to ensure regular turnover (including an overview of international regulations on director tenure) and an overview of the best and worst trends in governance, including with respect to the issue of gender diversity on boards, which has received much attention in the last few months. The report also includes a ranking of issuers on governance issues based on a methodology that takes into account board composition, shareholding and compensation, shareholder rights and disclosure.
