About the Investor Advisory Panel

The Investor Advisor Panel (IAP) is a unique and diverse panel of experts in investor issues from across Canada that advises New SRO in the development of regulatory policy, annual priorities, strategic plans, and other regulatory initiatives.

The mandate of the IAP is to assist New SRO in the effective fulfillment of its public interest mandate and to convey issues of concern to investors for consideration by New SRO. This includes providing input and advice on investor protection and access to advice initiatives with a view to addressing gaps relating to underserved investors and promoting diversity, inclusiveness and equity.

All members of the IAP are appointed for a minimum of two-years.
