June 9 (Reuters) - Canadian IT and consultancy company CGI Inc said on Tuesday former Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz has joined its board.
Poloz’s appointment to CGI’s board comes just a week after the end of his tenure as the central bank governor.
He was also appointed to the board of pipeline operator Enbridge Inc on June 4.
