The Voice of Canada’s Investment Funds Industry

Regulators’ Priorities

Many of the industry’s regulatory bodies publish statements of priorities and offer stakeholders an opportunity to comment and make proposals. IFIC focuses its commentary on the industry’s lead provincial regulators, the Ontario Securities Commission, the Autorité des marchés financiers (Quebec), and the Canadian Securities Administrators, as well as the industry’s two SROs – the Mutual Fund Dealers Association and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada.

The overarching goal of our commentary is to foster a strong, stable mutual funds industry where Canadian investors can realize their financial goals.
