This Report is the product of more than two years of work and critical evaluation by a diverse 13-member Committee that included leading corporate directors and governance experts from across Canada.

Our panel includes two members of the Committee – Rahul Bhardwaj, CEO of ICD in Canada and Indira Samarasekera, senior advisor to Bennett Jones and an experienced corporate director. Rahul and Indira will provide their insight into the Committee’s recommendations and the many discussions and debates that took place prior to the key recommendations coming from the Report.

Joining Rahul and Indira will be Christie Stephenson, Executive Director, Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics at UBC and experienced Board director who will provide a non-Committee member view of the Report and its recommendations.

Finally, the session will be moderated by John Desjardins, BC Chapter Chair.
