In a Notice published in the OSC Bulletin on November 11, 2011, 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 Commission was very impressed with the number of highly qualified practitioners who applied for positions on SAC. Unfortunately, there were far more applicants than there were positions available and selection from among the group was very difficult. The Commission would like to thank everyone who applied, for their interest in serving on SAC.

The Commission is pleased to publish the names of the three new members who will be participating on SAC for the next three years.

-- Brad Brasser
Jones Day, USA

The Commission would like to take this opportunity to thank the four members of SAC, listed below, who completed their term in January 2012, having 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.
