The OSC is seeking members for its Seniors Expert Advisory Committee (SEAC), said the regulator in a release.
The SEAC advises staff on securities-related policy and operational developments that affect older investors and gives input on the OSC’s related education and outreach activities. The committee will consist of up of 15 members, including members from the legal community, academia, industry, medical professionals and seniors’ advocates.
The committee will be constituted for one year and will meet four to six times.
Applications should be submitted by July 31 to policy manager Denise Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In March, the regulator published OSC Staff Notice 11-779 Seniors Strategy, which outlines new initiatives to respond to the needs of older investors and better equip registered firms and representatives to address issues that may arise as their clients age.
