OSC Requests Applications for Continuous Disclosure Advisory Committee


TORONTO - The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is seeking members for its Continuous Disclosure Advisory Committee (CDAC). Interested parties should submit their application, indicating their relevant experience by May 28, 2018. The current CDAC’s term has expired and the OSC thanks the outgoing members for their valuable contributions. 

The CDAC advises staff on a range of projects, including the planning, implementation and communication of its continuous disclosure review program, as well as related policy initiatives. The CDAC also serves as a forum to advise OSC staff on emerging issues, and to critically assess procedures.

The CDAC consists of 10 to 15 members who meet approximately five times annually. Members serve two-year terms, and are selected for their extensive knowledge of continuous disclosure issues and a strong interest in related policy. The CDAC is currently chaired by OSC staff representative Sonny Randhawa, Deputy Director of the Corporate Finance Branch.

Applications and questions regarding the CDAC may be submitted via email to:

Sonny Randhawa
Deputy Director, Corporate Finance Branch

The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices, to foster fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in the capital markets, and to contribute to the stability of the financial system and the reduction of systemic risk. 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 http://www.osc.gov.on.ca.
