Annual General Meetings

Once every year, an Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the owners is held. An AGM of the owners is typically held within six (6) months after the fiscal year end.  Our fiscal year end is October 31st. 


Subject to the regulations, the corporation, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, prepare financial statements for the corporation’s preceding fiscal year and distribute copies of the financial statements to each of the owners. This is also when the new Board of Directors is voted in. 


During the AGM we also come together as a community to discuss projects that took place, projects we would like to see and any issues that have come up over the year.

Please see below for notices of AGMs and summaries.
