At Osisko Mining Inc. (referred to herein as “Osisko” or the “Company”), we believe strongly that good corporate governance is important to the Company’s long-term success and the protection of the interests of our many stakeholders.
The Board has approved a set of corporate governance guidelines to promote the effective functioning of the Board of Directors and its Committees and to set forth a common set of expectations as to how the Board and the Corporation should manage its affairs and perform its responsibilities. Osisko has also adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that is applicable to all employees, contractors, consultants, officers and directors of Osisko.
These guidelines and Code led to the implementation of corporate policies to guide the Board and management in conducting its business activities in an appropriate and effective manner, and to harmonize its governance practices with regulatory requirements.
Osisko has several Committees that assist the Board with its overall responsibilities. These Committees include: the Audit Committee; the Corporate Governance & Nominating Committee; Compensation Committee; and the Health, Safety and Environment & Corporate Social Responsibility Committee. The Corporation may in the future establish other Committees.
The Corporation’s Corporate Governance practices comply with the national instruments of the Canadian Securities Administrators regarding corporate governance practices, including National Instrument 58-101 – “Disclosure of Corporate Governance Practices”.
