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.

A not-for-profit corporation serving as the operating company for the CFC, independent of the management company employed by The Division.
