CSA renews terms of Chair and Vice-Chair



    MONTREAL, April 23 /CNW Telbec/ - At the latest meeting of the members of
the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), held in Toronto on March 28 and
29, 2007, the term of CSA Chair Jean St-Gelais, President and CEO of the
Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), was renewed for two years. Mr.
St-Gelais was appointed CSA Chair in April 2005.
    "I am delighted to be able to assume this role for another two years and
look forward to further co-operation with my colleagues from other
jurisdictions to further harmonize and improve the regulation of capital
markets," said Mr. St-Gelais.
    The term of CSA Vice-Chair Don Murray, Chair of the Manitoba Securities
Commission, was also renewed for two years. "We will continue to apply the
CSA's strategic principles and pursue our efforts toward the implementation of
a more harmonized and streamlined securities regime in Canada," noted Mr.
Murray.
    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.
