To effect this amendment to the Articles of incorporation, the proposed amendment must be authorized by a resolution adopted by the board of directors. The resolution must then be approved by the shareholders present at a special general meeting, at which time the shareholders also authorize one director to sign the Articles of Amendment. For any changes to take affect, the change needs to be authorized by the Board of Directors.


Notice of Change of Directors. A director can resign at any time by giving notice to that effect. It is generally recommended that a corporation require a director's resignation to be in written form for purposes of proof. Following the election, removal or resignation of a new director, the corporation is required to notify Alberta Registries of such change by filing the applicable government form together with the prescribed government fee.
