REVISED ONTARIO SECURITIES COMMISSION STAFF NOTICE 11-742
SECURITIES ADVISORY COMMITTEE



In a Notice published in the OSC Bulletin on October 22, 2015, 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 four new members who will be participating on SAC for the next three years.
