The global pandemic has accelerated financial innovation, technological development and participation by retail investors, and has placed a spotlight on the role of capital markets in supporting a strong economic recovery, long-term growth with new investment opportunities.
Join Canadian Club Toronto on May 19 as OSC Chair and CEO Grant Vingoe discusses the transformation underway at Canada’s largest capital markets regulator, the trends affecting the market and the challenges of balancing a shifting regulatory focus and a growing mandate. He will outline how the OSC is meeting these challenges, and how regulation must keep pace with the fast-evolving markets, needs of investors and entrepreneurs. After his remarks, Grant will be joined in conversation by BNN Bloomberg’s Amber Kanwar.
