Bonnie DuPont has retired from her position as independent director on the board at Bird Construction.

DuPont has served on the Board since 2011. As an independent Board member and the Chair of Bird’s Human Resources and Governance Committee, she oversaw a period of significant modernization of the company’s executive compensation program, the company said in a press release.

In addition, DuPont contributed significantly to the maturity of Bird’s governance practices and oversight, building on the Company’s belief that good corporate governance is a pillar of its strategy.

A Fellow of the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) since 2015, a graduate of the ICD Corporate Directors’ Education Program, and a lecturer in the Directors’ Education Program offered by the ICD, DuPont brought a robust skill set and deep expertise to the Board during her tenure, it said.


“On behalf of Bird’s Board of Directors, management, employees, and stakeholders, I thank Ms. DuPont for her stewardship of the important progress in Bird’s corporate governance and human resources practices including its executive compensation program, in addition to her other invaluable contributions to the Board over the past 13 years,” said Paul R. Raboud, chair of the board of directors.

DuPont was named to the top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada list each year from 2001 to 2006, and in 2007, was inducted into the Top 100 Hall of Fame. In 2008, she was presented with an Honorary Doctor of Laws from the University of Regina and in 2011 was presented with an Honorary Bachelor’s Degree in Technology by the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.

She also received an Honorary LLD from the University of Calgary in 2017 and is the past chair of the Board of Governors at the University. In 2019, DuPont was appointed to the Alberta Order of Excellence.
