Extraordinary resolutions

  • 1Whereas the Board of Directors wants to restrain the potential for conflicts of interest within the Board of Directors, whether these conflicts are real or perceived in such a way that might suggest that Board of Directors' decisions are being made by taking into consideration interests other than those of all Caisse members, and Whereas this conflict of interest, or perceived conflict of interest, is often the result of a family relationship which could exist between the members of the Caisse's Board of Directors and employees. Be it resolved that the following provision be added to the Caisse's by-law: 5.27 Close family relationship restriction: "Close family relationship" means a family relationship between a director and a) the director's spouse; b) the director's parent, child, brother or sister; or c) the spouse of a director's parent or child. No Caisse director shall have a close family relationship with a Caisse employee.

  • 2 Whereas section 311 of the Bank Act provides that the Caisse's Annual Report must be sent to all members at least 21 days prior to the Annual General Meeting; Whereas the Board of Directors is of the opinion that such a mass mailing of the Annual Report to all members is neither a good practice environmentally nor in terms of costs associated therewith; Whereas the Board of Directors wishes to amend this obligation by way of an amendment to the by-laws which needs to be confirmed by members at the Annual General Meeting of the Caisse to be held on April 29th, 2017. Be it resolved that the Board of Directors hereby amends the by-laws of the Caisse by adding to it the following provision which will need to be confirmed by members at the Annual General Meeting in accordance with applicable laws. 10.39 Waiver Members of the Caisse expressly waive their rights to receive the Annual Report of the Caisse as provided for in paragraph 311(2) of the Bank Act or any other provision which would have the effect of replacing the obligation provided for in section 311 and all members hereby waive, in writing, their right to receive the Annual Report as per the applicable provisions of the Act. Notwithstanding the above, the Caisse will make its Annual Report available to all members, free of charge, on its website and by having copies available in all its business locations at least 21 days prior to the date of the Annual General Meeting of the Caisse. A member may also request that the Annual Report be provided to him by mail within the delay provided for in the Act. Such a written request must be presented to the Caisse's Corporate Secretary who will keep a list of all such requests to ensure that said members receive the Annual Report by mail.
