Essential to the success of the overall governance of Cenovus are guidelines and mandates that outline the specific responsibility of the Board of Directors, the Chair of the Board, the Chairs of Board Committees, the President & Chief Executive Officer and each of the five standing committees.

These mandates and guidelines are regularly reviewed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee to ensure they reflect the requirements of the Board and include best practices in corporate governance. Once committee mandates and guidelines are approved by the Board of Directors, they are posted on this page.
