CALGARY – October 27, 2022 – The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) today participated in the publication of CSA Multilateral Staff Notice 58-314 Review of Disclosure Regarding Women on Boards and in Executive Officer Positions (Year 8 Report).
As set out in National Instrument 58-101 Disclosure of Corporate Governance Practices, non-venture reporting issuers in Alberta are required to provide annual disclosure in their proxy circular or annual information form about representation of women on their boards and in executive officer positions, and other related disclosure requirements.
“It is encouraging to see progress being made within Alberta’s issuer community,” said Stan Magidson, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the ASC. “Investors are looking for more information about diversity in corporate board rooms and senior management, and we continue to explore diversity more broadly at the ASC and within the CSA.”
