On February 25, 2022, staff of the Canadian Securities Administrators provided issuers with their guidance on holding virtual shareholder meetings. Given the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, many reporting issuers have adopted a virtual format for their shareholder meetings. These meetings are typically conducted either entirely virtually, in place of an in-person meeting, or through a “hybrid” format held in-person while also permitting participation via electronic means. Accordingly, the CSA staff felt it appropriate to issue this new release with their recommendations for such meetings.
