Thought Leadership: Seniors Strategy
The OSC’s vision is a stronger and more secure financial future for all Ontario seniors. As part of the OSC’s continued efforts to deliver strong investor protection and responsive regulation, we developed a strategy and action plan to respond to their needs and priorities.
Our Seniors Strategy includes a comprehensive plan of targeted policy, operational, research, educational and outreach initiatives to ensure that older Ontarians’ needs are appropriately met by the OSC and the investment industry.
Supporting us in our vision is the Seniors Expert Advisory Committee (SEAC), an advisory committee that we administer and chair. SEAC serves as a forum to discuss issues and challenges faced by seniors and provides OSC staff with expert opinions on securities-related policy, operational, education and outreach activities designed to meet the needs of older investors.
We drew heavily on the expertise and insights provided by SEAC in developing the Seniors Strategy.
SEAC members represent a variety of disciplines, including the financial industry, law, academia, health and seniors advocacy.
