Our directors are very experienced, high caliber business leaders with diverse relevant skills and competencies. Our policy is for a majority of the Company’s directors to be independent. This means they are not a member of management and are free from any interest which could be perceived to materially interfere with their ability to act in the best interests of the Company. These 9 directors are also considered independent under the applicable securities laws.
The Corporate Governance Committee maintains a matrix of skills and qualifications for existing directors and new candidates to guide in the selection of new directors.
