Canadian companies and those with connections to Canada face continued challenges with respect to executive compensation. Public and private companies alike are putting more resources than ever before into developing executive compensation plans that are attractive and tax-efficient while aligning executive and corporate interests and remaining consistent with a focus on shareholder value.

This revised Second Edition of Stikeman Elliott's Executive Compensation Guide reviews the common legal issues that typically arise in the context of executive compensation, including issues relating to securities law, employment law, taxation, pensions law and intellectual property. The guide is designed to help Canadian and international companies and their boards identify the main challenges to focus on as they develop executive compensation plans and policies. We hope that you and your company will find it useful. Click here for information on our Executive Compensation Group.
