1 For the purposes of this mandate, an “unrelated director” has the meaning attributed to that term in the Report of The Toronto Stock Exchange Committee on Corporate Governance in Canada, being “a director who is independent of management is free from any interest and any business or other relationship which could, or could reasonably be perceived to, materially interfere with the director’s ability to act with a view to the best interests of the corporation, other than interests and relationships arising from shareholding.”
