Our Guide to Effective Proxy Circulars – 4th Canadian Edition, is a searchable catalog of innovative and shareholder-friendly proxy disclosures, drawn from the public filings of DFIN’s client base. ​​

  • Make the proxy circular a one-stop-shop of relevant information, saving investors time and effort
  • Humanize executive leadership and the board, highlighting diversity and key qualifications
  • Demonstrate board oversight of a growing array of traditional and emerging risks and opportunities, including ESG and Human Capital Management
  • Tell the executive compensation and pay-for-performance story, effectively
  • Strike the right balance between the print/physical, and digital/online proxies to meet the needs of a varied audience
