Archived - Minister Oliver Meets with Counterparts Responsible for the Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System
July 24, 2015 – Victoria, British Columbia – Department of Finance
Finance Minister Joe Oliver today attended the inaugural meeting of the Council of Ministers Responsible to review progress achieved in implementing the Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System, and to confirm the appointment of William A. Black as the first chair of the board of directors of the Capital Markets Regulatory Authority.
The Council also announced that participating jurisdictions will release updated draft provincial/territorial and federal capital markets legislation, along with draft initial regulations, for public comment this summer.
British Columbia, Ontario, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Yukon and Canada are jointly engaged in the creation of the Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System. The Cooperative System is designed to preserve local perspectives while streamlining the capital markets regulatory framework to enhance Canada's financial services sector, support efficient capital markets and manage systemic risk.
- The implementation of a Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System will:
- Foster more efficient, globally competitive capital markets in Canada;
- Provide increased protection for investors across Canada through more integrated and coordinated compliance and enforcement activities;
- Strengthen Canada’s capacity to identify and manage capital markets-related systemic risks on a national basis; and
- Enable Canada to play a more empowered and influential role in international regulatory initiatives.
