Independent report on poll

Section 351: Information to be made available on website

599.This section requires the company to publish on a website the independent assessor’s report of the poll or polls and sets out the minimum information relating to the assessor’s appointment, his identity, the text of the resolution and the assessor’s report that must be made available. Subsections (3) and (4) impose a penalty on every officer in default for non-compliance with this requirement. Failure to comply, however, does not invalidate the poll or the resolution or other business to which the poll relates. Section 353 sets out the requirements relating to the website on which the independent report must be published.
