TORONTO, April 26 (Reuters) - Barrick Gold Corp's shareholders at the company's annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday gave their backing to the gold miner's executive compensation plan, in a reversal from a year ago when they overwhelmingly voted down the scheme.

Although so-called say-on-pay votes are not mandatory in Canada and companies are not required to take any action on the outcome, they are an important barometer of investor attitudes.
