The MSAC serves as a forum to discuss issues associated with market structure and marketplace operations. The Committee also acts as a source of input and feedback for OSC staff to help facilitate the development of policy and rule-making initiatives that promote investor protection, fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in those markets.
Members are selected for their extensive knowledge of the Canadian capital markets and market structure, and strong knowledge of the regulatory requirements in securities legislation in Canada. Serving two-year terms, the 12 to 15 committee members meet four or more times annually and those that have not reached term limits have the opportunity to express an interest to renew their membership. The MSAC is currently chaired by the director of the Market Regulation Branch at the OSC.
All interested parties, including representatives with industry experience and expertise in market structure issues, are invited to submit applications for membership on the MSAC in writing, indicating their areas of practice and relevant experience. The OSC is looking for members with experience from a variety of different perspectives. Applications are due by July 4, 2015.
