OSC Requests members for the new Registrant Advisory Committee

TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is seeking applicants for membership on its new Registrant Advisory Committee (RAC).

In recognizing the importance of consulting with our stakeholders, the OSC’s RAC will serve as a forum to discuss issues and challenges faced by registrants in interpreting and complying with Ontario securities law, including registration and compliance related matters.

The Committee will also play a consultative role by providing feedback to the OSC on the development and implementation of policy and rule making initiatives that promote investor protection and fair and efficient capital markets.

The RAC will meet approximately 4 to 6 times per year, in addition to possible ad hoc meetings as required. The Committee will consist of 10 to 12 members representing the different registration categories and business models overseen by the OSC. Membership terms for the RAC will vary between 12 and 24 months.

The RAC will be co-chaired by Erez Blumberger, Deputy Director, Compliance and Registrant Regulation and Felicia Tedesco, Manager, Compliance and Registrant Regulation.

Interested parties should submit their application indicating their relevant experience by October 26, 2012.

Applications and questions regarding the RAC may be forwarded in writing to:
