In a Notice published in the OSC Bulletin on September 24, 2010, the Commission invited applications for positions on the Securities Advisory Committee ("SAC"). SAC provides advice to the Commission and staff on a variety of matters including legislative and policy initiatives and important capital markets trends and brings various issues to the attention of the Commission and staff.

The members of SAC have staggered terms. Seven of the members will complete their terms in December 2010. The Commission would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of SAC, listed below, who have served on the Committee with great dedication over the last two years. Their advice and guidance on a range of issues has been very valuable to the Commission.

The new members who will join in January 2011 for a three-year term are:
