Welcome to the Campfire Series: a convening of movement leaders to share what is and what should be top of mind in the impact space.
Our team members speak with Colette Murphy (CEO, Atkinson Foundation), Shannon Rohan (Chief Strategy Officer, SHARE), and Mark Sevestre (Senior Advisor and Founding Officer, NATOA) about The Story Behind the TMX Group Shareholder Resolution. Shareholders of TMX Group Ltd. made history at the company’s annual shareholder meeting on May 12, 2021 where a vote was passed to support a resolution on Indigenous inclusion and reconciliation. Estimated to have profound effects on Canadian companies and the Indigenous economy, this was the first time a proposal on reconciliation has ever been jointly endorsed by the board of directors of a Canadian company.
The Shareholder Association for Research and Education (SHARE), a national investor advocate, filed the proposal on behalf of the Atkinson Foundation. The vote speaks to the widespread desire for improved disclosure of public companies’ efforts on reconciliation and Indigenous inclusion.
