Two national organizations praise rigorous governance and disclosure transparency

The BCE Board was also recognized by the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance (CCGG), receiving the organization's Gavel Award for best corporate governance disclosure. The award underscores the importance of effective communications between corporations and their shareholders.
