Activism in Canada

There’s a popular myth that activist investing didn’t really exist in Canada until 2012. For this article, I spoke to proxy advisers, lawyers and activists to understand whether the country has since become an activist paradise.

  • How Bill Ackman blew the Canadian landscape open to activist investors.
  • Did JANA Partners’ campaign at Agrium set the cause of activism back?
  • Why it’s more expensive to run a proxy fight in Canada.


From the April edition of Activism Monthly Premium, published by Activist Insight.
