OSC has appointed Monica Kowal as vice-chair to the OSC, effective July 23, 2014. She assumes the role of Mary Condon, who returned to her position at Osgoode Hall Law School, and will continue to serve as a part-time OSC Commissioner.
Kowal served as OSC General Counsel since 2004, following a 15-year legal career in the private sector.
“Vice-chairs fulfill a vital role in carrying out the Commission’s regulatory responsibilities and ensuring the advancement of our mandate,” says Howard Wetston, chair and CEO of OSC. “We look forward to benefitting from Monica’s legal and securities experience on important regulatory initiatives and adjudication.”
Recently, Kowal played a critical role in the development of the OSC’s women on boards and in senior management proposals, and has also played a leading role on the Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System initiative, says OSC.
