Our Corporate Governance
CGIC Committed to Corporate Governance Practices of the Highest Standards
There are three elements to our governance structure:
The Committee for Canada (CFC)
The CFC is the Divisional Committee responsible for the oversight of the Canadian Division. It was created in pursuit of a Delegation Agreement with International Council.
The Chartered Governance Institute of Canada (CGIC)
A not-for-profit corporation serving as the operating company for the CFC, independent of the management company employed by The Division.
Our Code of Professional Ethics and Conduct
The CGIC Code of Conduct is comprehensive in scope, practical in application, and calls for high moral and ethical standards.
It is meant to serve not only as a guide to the profession but also to assure CGIC’s concern for the public that its members serve.
It is a mark of a profession that there is a voluntary assumption, by those who comprise it, of ethical principles that are aimed at both protection of the public and at achieving orderly and competent conduct within the profession.
It is for these purposes that the Code of Conduct is directed.
