Our Board of Directors considers the appropriate format for our annual meeting of shareholders on an annual basis. Similar to last year, we have again taken into account the ongoing impact of COVID-19, which has heightened public health and travel concerns for in-person annual meetings. Accordingly, we are pleased to continue to embrace the latest technology to provide expanded access, improved communication, and cost savings for our shareholders and the Company. This virtual format allows registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders to submit questions and comments and to vote during the meeting. We believe the virtual meeting format provides our shareholders with an equal opportunity to engage with us no matter where they live in the world, and is accessible and available on any internet-connected device, be it a phone, a tablet, or a computer. We believe the benefits of a virtual meeting allow our shareholders to have robust engagement with the Company, and is in the best interests of our shareholders.

The Company's Management Information Circular and Notice of Meeting as well as its 2021 Annual Report is available to shareholders in the Investor Relations section of Algoma's website. Meeting materials distributed to shareholders include their control number and instructions on how to access the webcast the day of the meeting and vote their shares. Instructions will also be posted on the Investor Relations section of Algoma's website.

Financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 will also be released on May 4, 2022 and will be reviewed during the webcast. Our first quarter earnings release as well as full financial results will be available on the Company's website and on SEDAR.
