CSCS’ 2014 Excellence in Governance Awards Winners Announced

September 4, 2014

The Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries (CSCS) recently announced the winners of the 2014 Excellence in Governance Awards, which were presented as part of the opening gala of the CSCS' 16th Annual Corporate Governance Conference in Banff, Alberta last month.

As the Canadian business landscape has shifted over the years, public, private and non-profit companies are paying greater attention to the way they conduct business and their social responsibilities as corporate citizens. Now in their second year, the awards celebrate the many contributions that Canada's top governance professionals made – and continue to make – to their organizations and, by extension, the country's economy and capital markets by implementing, among other things, effective governance, risk and compliance practices. Organizations with effective governance processes are also recognized and celebrated.

TMX Equity Transfer Services, a division of TSX Company Services, was pleased to sponsor and present the first award of the evening, which was given to a Canadian company that was deemed to have the best sustainability, ethics and environmental governance program. Entrants were judged on the quality, consistency, robustness and clarity of corporate social responsibility programs and reporting. This year's winner in this category was ATB Financial.

The 2014 Excellence in Governance Award winners were selected by a jury panel selected by the CSCS and composed of ten seasoned and well-respected governance experts from across Canada, having each contributed in significant ways to corporate governance and strategic leadership in their respective organizations.
