    This study examines the rate or percentage of shareholder proposals implemented after being proposed at annual shareholder meetings. The study concentrates notably on shareholder proposals related to governance practices of Canadian companies. The results of data analyzed from 142 proposals tend to indicate that the implementation rate, although low, varies as a function of the subject matter proposed and the type of shareholders involved. Moreover, the fact that the proposals were not put to a vote or that the ballots were less than 50% seems to have little impact on the implementation of the particular governance practices specified by the proposals.
