Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations (IGOPP) – Bill 86 Hearings

IGOPP was created in 2005 by two academic institutions (HEC Montréal and Concordia University – The John Molson School of Business), the Stephen Jarislowsky Foundation and the Autorité des marchés financiers.

The Institute for governance (IGOPP) has become a centre for excellence about governance of public and private organizations. Through research, training programs, policy papers and participation in public debates, IGOPP has become a key reference on all issues of governance in the private and public sectors.

How can a small group of people, working on a part-time basis, successfully oversee, manage and guide the executives of an organization, make strategic decisions and protect and promote the interests of their principals?

Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations (IGOPP) – Contributions

IGOPP continues to contribute in developing operating models for not only exchange listed corporations but also SMEs, government corporations, public organizations, as well as not for profit and cooperative organizations.

Undeniably, on issues respecting shareholders, directors’ independence, compensation or the place of women on board of directors, IGOPP has quickly put forward an original vision and become the reference in Quebec for these governance issues.

Through innovative research on governance issues, IGOPP raises discussions and spins ideas; its position papers also contribute to its recognition in the business communities on governance issues.

Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations (IGOPP) – Challenge

The next few years will be crucial in order to anchor good governance practices to a value creating process. Well beyond fiduciary governance, the governance of the next decade will be rooted in not only values but also optimized strategic and financial management. A true challenge will lie in properly calibrating the performance, compensation and fairness trio. This process certainly rests on the competence of directors, but also their credibility and their legitimacy.

Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations – Audience

IGOPP’s audience for the Bill 86 Hearings is set for March 17th, 2016 between 12:15pm and 1:00pm, and to be held at the National Assembly in Quebec City in the Salle Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine.

Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations – Working Group on University Governance

The study group on university governance was chaired by Jean-Marie Toulouse, a professor at HEC Montréal and former director of the school (January 1995 to September 2006).

The mandate of the Group was three-fold:

1- Assess current practices and challenges for the proper governance of universities in Quebec and elsewhere.

2- Assess various principles and practices put in place to improve the quality of university governance in Quebec and around the world.

3- Make specific recommendations that are likely to enhance the quality of university governance in Quebec.
