  • Important to note that nominations can also be generated at the AGM from the floor.

Nominations from the Floor - An individual may be nominated from the floor of the meeting of the Members in accordance with the Act.

Each Nominee will be provided a few minutes to talk to the membership prior to the election. Membership will also be given a chance to ask questions of the nominees. If there is only one nominee, that person would be acclaimed into the role they are running for.

Formal Resolutions Under Consideration:

There are no formal resolutions under consideration at the 2023 AGM.


The only persons entitled to attend a meeting of the Members are the Members, the Directors, the auditors of the Corporation (or the person who has been appointed to conduct a review engagement, if any), individuals possessing a proxy on behalf of a Member, and others who are entitled or required under any provision of the Act or the articles to be present at the meeting. Any other person may be admitted only if invited by the Chair of the meeting or with the majority consent of the Members present at the meeting.

Voting Rights:

Registered Members will be entitled to one (1) vote for everyone hundred (100) players (U6LTS through 30+ Masters) registered with the Corporation in the past season. When you arrive in the zoom meeting, you will enter the waiting room and be admitted to the zoom call, when you enter the meeting you will be notified of the qty of votes your association or position will be entitled to. Your vote qty will be based on the information provided to WRRA from Ringette Ontario for your membership size.

Absentee Voting:

A Member may vote in writing in advance of the meeting of the Members on published proposed resolutions and for the election of Directors by so indicating the vote to the Secretary prior to the vote being taken. These can be emailed to Mark Delafranier: secwrra@wrra.ca

Proxy Voting

Every Member entitled to vote at a meeting of Members may, by means of a proxy, appoint a proxy holder, or one or more alternate proxy holders, to attend and vote on behalf of the Member. The proxy holder need not be a Member. A proxy must:

  1. a) Be signed by the Member;
  2. b) Be in a form that complies with the Act;
  3. c) Comply with the format stipulated by the Corporation; and
  4. d) Be submitted to the Registered Office of the Corporation at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the

meeting of the Members

These can be emailed to Mark Delafranier: secwrra@wrra.ca

Voting Process:

Votes will be determined by a show of hands, orally or electronic ballot, except in the case of elections which require a secret ballot, unless a secret or recorded ballot is requested by a Member. We will be using the functions of Zoom for performing these as best we can. For the election, we will be using a private message to the person running the election portion of the AGM.


  • It is expected that the delegates to the General Meetings will review these reports prior to attending and thus be prepared with questions, discussion and comments as appropriate. This will lead to quick and efficient meetings with well-thought-out feedback for our executives.
  • It is also expected that meeting delegates will take the time to print off copies of the reports they require, bring them to the meeting and save the executive and coordinators bringing extra copies.
  • It is hoped that by providing this facility on the website all members of the Western Region will have access to the information available and we can assist their delegates to ensure that all required information circulates throughout our membership.
