The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) announced on April 18 that registration for the May 6 and May 27, 2019 burden reduction roundtables is now open.
The roundtables are part of the OSC's consultation on reducing the regulatory burden in Ontario's capital markets and improving investor experience, says the regulator.
The May 6 roundtable will focus on burden reduction related to registration, compliance and investment funds. The May 27 roundtable “will explore opportunities to streamline regulation related to trading, marketplaces, issuer requirements and derivatives,”
Both roundtables will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Design Exchange, 234 Bay Street in Toronto. Those unable to attend in person may listen to the event via teleconference.
Those wishing to attend the roundtables should register online on the OSC's website. Anyone interested in speaking at these roundtables should indicate their interest when they register online, advises the regulator. Due to space constraints and the need to achieve representation across stakeholder groups, speakers invited to sit at the roundtable will be confirmed by email, says the OSC.
