The importance of a strong regulator for economic development

MONTREAL, April 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Media representatives are invited to attend the business luncheon of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal on Tuesday, April 27, 2010, at noon. Jean St-Gelais, President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers, will be our guest speaker.

On this occasion, Mr. St-Gelais will be underscoring the importance of having a strong regulator to ensure Quebec's economic development and the effective supervision of financial markets. The 2008 economic crisis brought our financial system to the foreground. It is vitally important to take this opportunity to build new foundations that will allow for better control of the financial markets. The Autorité has a key role to play in establishing an integrated and innovative regulatory system that will ensure that financial markets are adequately supervised for the future.

Mr. St-Gelais will also speak about the 35th annual conference of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (OICV), which will be held in Montréal in June.

The speech will be delivered in French only.
