Board Committees

The Board of Directors fulfills many of its responsibilities with the support of five committees: Audit Committee, Corporate Governance & Social Responsibility Committee, Nominating Committee and Human Resources Committee. Every member of the Audit Committee, the Human Resources Committee and the Nominating Committee is independent according to the standards of corporate and securities laws as well as Empire’s own governance policies. All members of the Audit Committee meet the independence and financial literacy tests set out in Multilateral Instrument 52-110 adopted by most of the Canadian securities regulators.
