OSC Seeks Applications for the Registrant Advisory Committee

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

In recognizing the importance of consulting with stakeholders, the OSC’s RAC serves 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 also plays 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.

Established in 2012, the RAC meets approximately four times per year, with additional ad hoc meetings as required. The Committee consists of 10 to 12 members representing the different registration categories and business models overseen by the OSC.  Membership terms for the RAC will be for 24 months, at which point we will review the RAC membership.

The RAC is chaired by Debra Foubert, Director, Compliance and Registrant Regulation.
Interested parties should submit their resume indicating their relevant experience by October 24, 2016 to
