The roundtable will take place on September 18, 2017, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Globe and Mail Centre, 17th Floor, 351 King Street East, Toronto. The roundtable will focus on options put forward by industry for consideration during the recent written consultation, to discuss whether they address the investor harms caused by embedded commissions.
