TORONTO – 

The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is seeking members for its newly established Seniors Expert Advisory Committee (SEAC), which will advise staff on issues impacting older investors and help the OSC develop tailored solutions. 

“The Seniors Expert Advisory Committee will give the OSC access to a multidisciplinary team of experts on issues related to older investors, providing us with valuable input on our seniors strategy, an important initiative for the OSC,” said Maureen Jensen, Chair and CEO of the OSC. “The committee builds on our ongoing efforts to better understand the unique needs of older investors.” 

The SEAC will advise staff on securities-related policy and operational developments that impact older investors and will provide input on the OSC’s related education and outreach activities. The committee will consist of up to 15 members, including representation from the legal community, academia, industry, medical professionals and seniors’ advocates.   

The SEAC will be constituted for a one year-period and will meet approximately four to six times. The committee will be chaired by Tyler Fleming, Director of the Investor Office, which leads the development of the OSC seniors strategy and its related initiatives. 

Interested parties are invited to apply in writing for membership, indicating areas of practice and relevant experience, by July 29, 2016.
Applications and questions regarding the SEAC may be submitted via email to: 

Denise Morris, 
Manager Ontario Securities Commission
