About the OSC
Visiting the OSC
The OSC may host delegations from government departments or regulatory agencies responsible for the regulation of financial services, markets and/or corporations.
Requesting a visit
Every year, we receive more requests than we can accommodate. As a result, the OSC will not ordinarily meet your request unless we have an appropriate advance notice and information from you.
Please submit your request to us in writing, preferably at least four weeks before your proposed visit. This will help us prepare for your visit by arranging for appropriate OSC staff to be available to meet with you.
Include the following information in your request:
- Details about your organization, including the name of the organization, country or jurisdiction, contact person and position title, address, telephone number, fax number and email address.
- Date of proposed visit.
- Names of the people who will be attending.
- Why you would like to visit the OSC and what you intend to get out of the visit.
- Specific issues and questions you want to discuss.
- List of other organizations you will be visiting on this trip to Ontario or Canada
- Particulars of any other recent visits to the OSC by members of your organization.
The OSC will let you know if we are able to meet with you within 10 days of receiving your completed request.

If your request is approved
We expect that you have some knowledge of OSC from the information on our website. We suggest you visit About the OSC for information about the OSC’s functions and powers and Publications for links to information about our key initiatives.
Non-English speaking delegations should ensure that they have a proficient interpreter with them.
So that your visit is of mutual benefit, at the time of the meeting, we may ask you about your jurisdiction generally, and how the specific matters you wish to discuss with the OSC are dealt with in your jurisdiction.
