The site features an extensive collection of regulatory content from both Canada and the U.S. and includes contributions from a variety of industry participants. It also presents current and relevant proxy statistics, solution information and industry news.

"We have always encouraged dialogue among industry participants. This site is intended to provide a platform for the exchange of balanced, informed and relevant information between corporate issuers, regulators and investor groups," said Patricia Rosch, President, Investor Communication Solutions, Canada, Broadridge. "We participate actively in these very important discussions, providing the benefits of our experience and expertise. Charting the Course is a way of making these discussions more inclusive."

Ms. Rosch explained, "We believe that any review of the proxy system must be conducted based on a solid foundation of factual and balanced information. We are very excited that the Charting the Course web site will extend access to critical quantitative data.
