Friday, October 28, 2016 - 9:00am to 1:00pm
Location: 
Moot Court Room, University of Toronto Faculty of Law, Jackman Law Building, 78 Queen's Park

The Canadian Foundation for Advancement of Investor Rights (FAIR Canada), The Program on Ethics in Law and Business at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law and the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance are pleased to co-host a conference examining shareholder rights in Canada.
 
As institutional shareholders and hedge funds gain prominence in today's capital markets, shareholder rights have been under the microscope: Has corporate law kept pace with the changing nature of capital markets and growth of different types of shareholders? Is "shareholder democracy" an outmoded concept? Do securities regulators have a responsibility to respond to shareholder activism? If so, how? Where do the interests of retail shareholders sit in the analysis?

The conference will include a comparative view of Canada and the United States, with a focus on recent developments in shareholder activism and the rights that permit such activism to occur.

This program is eligible for 3 Substantive Hours towards the annual CPD requirement with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC).
