TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2019 /CNW/ - The Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) is creating six Stakeholder Advisory Committees (SACs) this fall, to serve as consultative bodies to FSRA's Board of Directors. Today, we are launching the application process for these committees.
FSRA is committed to an open, transparent and collaborative approach that involves stakeholders and ensures broad input and perspectives as we work to deliver on our mandate under the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario Act, 2016. The SACs will play an important role in fulfilling this commitment.
The SACs will build upon the success of the pre-launch Industry Advisory Groups (IAGs) and consumer roundtable that informed our 2019 launch. They will also build upon input from our May 2019 stakeholder survey. Our stakeholders highlighted the importance of having regular consultations and recommended that these consultations be separated by sector. Our stakeholders also noted the importance of FSRA reporting on the outcomes of committee sessions and on how feedback is considered.
SACs will be established in the following sectors:
Effective June 8, 2019, the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) has assumed the regulatory duties of the Financial Services Commission of Ontario and the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario.
