​Committees

The boards of directors of SSQ's two insurance companies each have four permanent committees:

  • Executive and Human Resources Committee
  • Audit and Risk Management Committee
  • Investment Committee
  • Ethics Committee

For the purposes of transparency and efficient sharing of information, each Committee reports to its Board of Directors on its work.

Another committee, the Mutualism Promotion Committee, has a mission to promote the financial group's mutualist values.

Executive and Human Resources Committees

The role of the executive and human resources committees is to ensure the Company runs properly in accordance with the policies, programs and budgets established by its boards of directors.
