How to Become a Member or an Associate

Organizations can be involved in the activities of CCGG by applying to become a Member or an Associate.

All applications are subject to the approval of CCGG’s Board of Directors.

Members

The following organizations are eligible to become a Member:

a pension plan, investment advisor, mutual or other fund manager (or similar organization) that in the ordinary course of business manages money in a fiduciary capacity.

Members are entitled to receive notice of all Member meetings and to attend and vote at those meetings.

Members are eligible to participate in all CCGG Member committees (subject to available openings and to approval of CCGG’s Board of Directors).

Members are entitled to receive all communications from CCGG, including company-specific information such as detailed reviews of the governance practices of Canadian companies and engagement meeting reports, and are entitled to listen to CCGG webinars.

Annual Member fees are based on total assets under management (AUM). The annual fee for Members with total AUM below $1.5 billion is $2,500. As total AUM increases above $1.5 billion, the fee escalates on a straight-line basis by $1,500 for every $1 billion to a maximum annual fee of $44,000. An affiliate of a Member paying the maximum annual fee of $44,000 is eligible to become a Member for an annual fee of $2,500 irrespective of that affiliate’s total AUM.

Associates

The following organizations are eligible to become an Associate:

a non-Canadian-based pension plan, investment advisor, mutual or other fund manager (or similar organization) that in the ordinary course of business manages money in a fiduciary capacity and invests in Canadian equities;

an organization that is actively involved in promoting good governance in Canada or elsewhere and/or would provide a unique perspective that would assist CCGG in working to improve corporate governance in Canada; or

a Canadian or international professional organization, including a legal or accounting firm, with proven expertise in corporate governance.

Associates are eligible to participate in certain CCGG Member committees (subject to available openings and to approval of CCGG’s Board of Directors).

Associates are entitled to receive all general information and communications sent to Members, with the exception of any company specific information, and are entitled to listen to CCGG webinars.

Associates may be invited to attend Member meetings but they are not entitled to vote at those meetings.

The annual fee for an Associate is $3,000. If an organization is an investor association similar to CCGG (such as the associations which are members of the Global Network of Investor Associations), then that organization is eligible to become a free reciprocal Associate of CCGG provided that CCGG joins that organization on a free reciprocal basis.
