At Weston, we believe that sound corporate governance practices contribute
significantly to the achievement of our strategic and operational plans, goals and objectives.
We strive to attain the highest standards of corporate governance and adopt best practices in developing
our approach to corporate governance.
Our corporate governance policies and practices are consistent with
National Policy 58-201 – Corporate Governance Guidelines. The Governance, Human Resource, Nominating
and Compensation Committee regularly reviews our corporate governance practices and considers any changes
necessary to maintain Weston’s high standards of corporate governance.
We strive to earn and retain the trust of our shareholders through our steadfast commitment to sound
principles of corporate governance. Leadership in governance begins with our Board of Directors. It is the
responsibility of the Board to ensure that each member of senior management is held accountable for his or
her actions to shareholders, customers and employees, and to the communities in which we do business.
The mandates and charters of our Board of Directors and its committees are reviewed and revised to
ensure that Weston’s policies and practices represent best practices in governance and disclosure.
