THE CONVENTION CENTRE CORPORATION AMENDMENT ACT
(Assented to )
HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, enacts as follows:
The definition "convention centre" in section 1 is amended
(a) by striking out "the convention centre" wherever it occurs and substituting "the Winnipeg Convention Centre"; and
Section 1 is amended by adding the following definitions:
"council" means council of The City of Winnipeg; (« conseil municipal »)
Section 11 is replaced with the following:
The board is to manage and administer the affairs of the corporation.
The board is to consist of 15 directors appointed as follows:
(a) two members of council, appointed by council;
(b) seven persons appointed by council;
(c) four persons appointed by the board;
(d) two persons appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
A director other than a member of council
(a) is to hold office for a term of two years, beginning on January 1; and
(b) is eligible to hold office for a maximum of three consecutive terms or six consecutive years, whichever is less, but then is not eligible to hold office until at least two years after the end of his or her third term or sixth year.
A member of council
(a) is to hold office for a term of one year, beginning on January 1; and
(b) is eligible to hold office for a maximum of six consecutive terms, but then is not eligible to hold office until at least one year after the end of his or her sixth term.
At the time his or her term commences, a director must be
(a) at least 18 years old; and
(b) normally resident in the City of Winnipeg.
If a director dies or becomes incapable, the board may so advise the body that appointed him or her, and that body may terminate the director's appointment and appoint a successor to hold office for the remainder of the director's term.
Despite subsection 13(2) and the other provisions of this section, the number of directors may be changed by by-law, but such a by-law may not
(a) take effect until it is approved at an annual general meeting of the corporation; or
Section 12 is amended
(a) by striking out "member of the corporation or of the board or any" and substituting "director and no"; and
Clause 13(1)(c) is replaced with the following:
Subsection 13(2) is amended
(a) by striking out "annual meeting of members" and substituting "annual general meeting of the corporation"; and
Subsection 15(2) is amended by striking out "members of the corporation" and substituting "directors".
A director who holds office on the coming into force of this Act continues to hold office until his or her term expires.
No more than two directors may hold office under clause 11(2)(c) of The Convention Centre Corporation Act until fewer than three directors hold office under clause 11(2)(a) of The Convention Centre Corporation Act, as those clauses are enacted by section 6 of this Act.
Despite clause 11(3)(a) of The Convention Centre Corporation Act as enacted by section 6 of this Act, the board must shorten the term of office of one or more of the directors it appoints to one year as necessary to ensure that the terms of office of at least half of the directors it appoints expire each year.
This Act comes into force on the day it receives royal assent.
