TORONTO, July 28 /CNW/ - The Investment Industry Association of Canada

and recommendations of previous reform efforts and bring forward
recommendations to make a common securities regulator a reality. The IIAC

needed structural and content reform for securities regulation and defining a
process that achieves these results."
