TORONTO, July 3, 2019 /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 initiatives 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 investors and organizations representing investors.
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.
Members are appointed for terms of up to two years and will be compensated for their time in meeting the IAP's mandate.

The Chair of the OSC will appoint the panel members based on the recommendations of the selection committee.
