Victoria, British Columbia CANADA, March 14, 2013 /FSC/ - Carmanah Technologies
Corporation (CMH - TSX), ("Carmanah" or the "Company") has appointed Daniel
Nocente to the Board of Directors (the 'Board"). Mr. Nocente was most recently
the Vice-Chairman of National Bank Financial (Corporate and Investment Banking)
based in Vancouver B.C., Canada. Prior to joining National Bank, Mr. Nocente was

"We are privileged to have such a wealth of experience and expertise to augment
our current Carmanah board of directors," said Robert Cruickshank, Chairman of
the Carmanah Board. "I am pleased to welcome Daniel on behalf of Carmanah, and
am certain he will contribute significantly towards the company executing on its
growth strategy." 
The Board has recently undertaken a complete review of governance policies and
procedures and approved a complete set of new governance documents. To review
any of these new policies as adopted please see our Company website
(www.carmanah.com). 
As part of this process the Board has approved the adoption of  an advance
notice policy (the "Policy") on February 14, 2013, which Policy, among other
things, includes a provision that requires advance notice to the Company in
circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the board of
directors are made by shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a
"proposal" made in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (British
Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a requisition of the shareholders made in
accordance with the Act. Among other things, the Policy fixes a deadline by
which holders of record of common shares of Carmanah must submit director
nominations to the Secretary of the Company prior to any annual or special
meeting of shareholders and sets forth the specific information that a
shareholder must include in the written notice to the Secretary of the Company
for an effective nomination to occur. No person will be eligible for election as
a director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the provisions of
the Policy. 
In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be
made not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual
meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the annual meeting is to be
held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first
public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be
made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public
announcement. 
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual
meeting), notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of
business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public
announcement of the date of the special meeting was made. 
The Policy is effective and in full force and effect as of the date it was
approved.
