OSC Requests Members for Market Structure Advisory Committee

TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is inviting applications for membership on its Market Structure Advisory Committee (MSAC).

Established in 2011, the MSAC serves as a forum to discuss issues associated with market structure and marketplace operations. The MSAC also acts as a source of input and feedback for OSC staff to help facilitate the development of policy and rule-making initiatives that promote investor protection, fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in those markets.

Serving two-year terms, the 12 to 15 committee members meet at least four times annually and have the opportunity to express an interest to renew their membership. Members are selected for their extensive knowledge of the Canadian capital markets and market structure, and strong knowledge of the regulatory requirements in securities legislation in Canada. The MSAC is currently chaired by an industry representative.

All interested parties, including representatives with industry experience and expertise in market structure issues, are invited to submit applications for membership on the MSAC in writing, indicating their areas of practice and relevant experience. Members with experience from a variety of different perspectives is desirable. Applications are due by July 2nd, 2013.
