Canadian Securities Administrators Renew Term of Chair and Vice-Chair

MONTRÉAL, March 30, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Pursuant to the last meeting of the members of the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), the term of CSA President Louis Morisset, President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers, was renewed for a further two years, until March 31, 2019. Mr. Morisset was first appointed CSA Chair in March 2015.

"I look forward to another two years as CSA Chair and to continuing the collaborative work with my colleagues from other jurisdictions as we remain firmly committed to delivering on the priorities set in our most recent three-year business plan," said Mr. Morisset. "Our focus will remain on our fundamental objectives, which are to work collectively to protect Canadian investors while striving to further harmonize and advance securities regulation in Canada."

The terms of Mr. Don Murray, Chair of the Manitoba Securities Commission, as CSA Vice-Chair, and of Ms. Maureen Jensen, Chair and CEO of the Ontario Securities Commission, as Chair of the Policy Coordination Committee, were also renewed for two years.

The CSA, the council of securities regulators of Canada's provinces and territories, coordinate and harmonize regulation for the Canadian capital markets. Their mandate is to protect investors from unfair or fraudulent practices through regulation of the securities industry. Part of this protection is educating investors about the risk, responsibilities and rewards of investing.
