OSC Seeks Members for Investor Advisory Panel


TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is inviting applications for membership on its Investor Advisory Panel. The seven-member Panel, which was established in 2010, is nearing the end of its initial two-year term. While all members were offered reappointment for an additional term, three members, including Chair Anita Anand, have chosen not to renew their appointment.

“The OSC thanks Anita Anand, Lincoln Caylor and Michael Wissell for their significant contributions to the success of the Investor Advisory Panel in its first two years,” said Mary Condon, Vice-Chair of the OSC. “The Panel has become an important voice for investors in the regulatory process, and the new members will be selected to ensure that the Panel continues to represent a broad range of relevant experience, skills, knowledge and perspectives.”

For information on the Panel’s activities and details on how to submit an application, please visit the investor section of the OSC website at www.osc.gov.on.ca.

The OSC administers and enforces securities legislation in the province of Ontario. The OSC’s statutory mandate is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices and to foster fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in capital markets.
