At the ICD, we have an opportunity to meet an important need that our members look to us to provide – a strong, unified voice for the director community. Our role is to represent directors and their interests and develop thought leadership for and among our members.
To best represent directors with the public, regulators, politicians, stakeholders and the media, we engage in open forums and direct communication with our members to ensure that we advocate from the director perspective, set higher standards of director excellence, and advance corporate governance in Canada and abroad.
Furthermore, the ICD helps develop best practices on director issues, frameworks, and recommended approaches. We also embark on research papers, conduct surveys and more, in efforts to aid directors in their roles.
