Over the past year, regulators have issued a number of notices providing guidance and suggested best practices relevant to continuous disclosure, most notably relating to the transition to IFRS effective January 1, 2011. Meanwhile, groups such as theCanadian Coalition for Good Governance and ISS have also released model policies and guidance on such topics as executive and director compensation, proxy disclosure, "say on pay" and majority voting. We have created this 2011 Canadian Public Company Disclosure Reference Guide to assist you in preparing your 2010 annual disclosure, including financial statements, MD&A, AIFs and information circulars. This guide sets out the main sources of the disclosure requirements along with relevant guidance, best practices and policies, as applicable.
