OSC offers additional seminars for small and medium enterprises



TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) announced today that it is adding three sessions to the ‘OSC SME Institute’ to further assist small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with information about market access, capital raising and cost-effective regulatory compliance.

The OSC will offer the mineral disclosure, continuous disclosure and capital raising seminar sessions for a second time this winter. These sessions were well attended and proved to be of most interest to Ontario SMEs when they were offered previously.

In 2012-2013, 400 attendees participated in 15 ‘OSC SME Institute’ sessions. The program continues to inform SMEs in different industries across Ontario on how to avoid common deficiencies, navigate Ontario’s regulatory requirements and gives SMEs the opportunity to hear first-hand from OSC Staff on the latest issues impacting their markets.

Interested SMEs can register and find the OSC SME Institute seminar calendar and course descriptions on the Small and Medium Enterprises page of the OSC website. For questions, please contact SMEInstitute@osc.gov.on.ca. The sessions will also be available via webinar on the OSC website.

SMEs are also encouraged to join the OSC’s SME Community to receive regular updates on OSC initiatives, policies and programs impacting their market.
