FIAC membership is capped at 15. Each marketplace that trades fixed income securities and has retained IIROC to be its regulation services provider may nominate one member, an IIROC release says. Where more than one marketplace operates within an affiliated group, the affiliated group may nominate one member.

Nominations must be submitted by Feb. 28 to Kevin McCoy, IIROC’s vice-president of market policy and trading conduct compliance.

IIROC is seeking the following nominations:

• representative from an IIROC dealer that is designated as Primary Dealers of Government of Canada Bonds by the Bank of Canada (GSD); • representative from an IIROC dealer other than GSDs that operates a fixed-income trading business • legal/compliance representative from an IIROC dealer; and • independent representative.
