TORONTO, March 6, 2017 /CNW/ - The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is inviting applications for membership on its Investor Advisory Panel (IAP), which provides an investor perspective on the policy- and rule-making process of the OSC.
The IAP advises and comments on proposed rules, policies and investor protection initiatives, while considering the views of a broad range of investors through consultation with— and input from— investors and organizations representing investors.
Several members of the current IAP are nearing the end of their terms in May and October 2017 and new members will be appointed to fill vacancies. Members are appointed for terms of up to two years and, in recognition of the significant commitment required, are compensated for their time in meeting the IAP's mandate.
The IAP is an important voice for investors in the regulatory process, and new members will be selected to ensure that the Panel continues to represent a broad range of relevant experience, skills, knowledge and perspectives. A selection committee consisting of two Commissioners and a Vice-Chair will interview short-listed candidates. The Chair of the OSC will appoint the panel members based on the recommendations of the selection committee.
Interested parties are invited to submit their resume indicating their relevant experience by April 28, 2017. Applications and questions regarding the IAP can be addressed to:
Denise Morris, Manager
Ontario Securities Commission
The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices and to foster fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in the capital markets. Investors are urged to check the registration of any persons or company offering an investment opportunity and to review the OSC investor materials available at www.osc.gov.on.ca.
