To be eligible to vote in the election, members must have their account with CanadaGAP in good standing and must have signed the membership agreement with CanAgPlus. (If in doubt, please confirm with CanadaGAP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-829-4711).
Member voting is optional. Those who do not wish to participate may opt out.
If a company or Group enrolled in CanadaGAP is not sending a delegate to the meeting or appointing a proxy to vote on their behalf, they may still vote in the election of directors in advance of the meeting, either on-line or by mailed-in ballot.
Voters must identify themselves in order for their ballot to be validated. The following will be confirmed:
- that you are a member in good standing of CanAgPlus
- that only one ballot has been cast in your company/Group’s name
- that your ballot is correctly weighted according to your enrolment option.
Once confirmed, identifying information will be separated from your ballot. Ballots will be treated as anonymous and only the results tallied for presentation at the AGM.
The Voting Policy and Procedures for the AGM are available here.
