2020-21 Board of Directors

The people who give their time to make change happen

For information on compensating Board Members or their company, please see “Board of Directors Code of Conduct Policy“.

During the year (May 2019) , we incurred legal fees with a party which a member of our Board of Directors is associated. These transactions were considered to be in the normal course of business and were measured at or below fair value.  The service from O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP was to assist with the merger/amalgamation of HPRT and UWHH. Board Chair and managing partner in the law firm, James McAskill declared a conflict with any discussion that occurred at the Board table and recused himself from any discussion.
