Board MandateThe responsibilities of the Board of Directors include setting long term goals and objectives for the Company, formulating the plans and strategies necessary to achieve those objectives and supervising senior management in their implementation. Although the Board delegates the responsibility for managing the day to day affairs of the Company to senior management personnel, the Board retains a supervisory role in respect of, and ultimate responsibility for, all matters relating to the Company and its business.
Board CommitteesThe Board of Directors has established three board committees; audit, compensation, and corporate governance and nominating.
Audit Committee - Larry Moeller/Chairman, Pierre Lebel, Ed Yurkowski
The audit Committee has been structured to comply with Multilateral Instrument 52-110. The audit Committee is responsible for reviewing the Company's financial reporting procedures, internal controls and the performance of the Company's external auditors. All three members of the Audit Committee are independent and financially literate, meaning they are able to read and understand the Company's financial statements and to understand the breadth and level of complexity of the issues that can be reasonably be expected to be raised by the Company's financial statements.
