National Advisory Committee

IIROC’s National Advisory Committee (NAC) is an advisory body which serves as a forum for Chairs of the District Councils to raise and discuss matters of interest and provide input on policy initiatives. The NAC holds regular quarterly meetings and special meetings at the call of the Chair and reports to the IIROC Board of Directors three times a year.



NAC Mandate

  1. NAC should seek to solicit, review, coordinate and build consensus from comments and responses to regulatory proposals received from District Councils;

  2. NAC should assume an advocacy role consistent with investor protection to promote self-regulation by acting as ambassadors to the industry at large;

  3. NAC should identify and advise IIROC staff about industry trends that would assist IIROC in being more proactive in dealing with emerging issues and meeting regulatory obligations; and

  4. NAC should aim to develop and harmonize a national approach to dealing with regulatory issues with respect to which the District Councils have a role such as granting registration exemptions, membership approvals, etc.   



NAC Membership

NAC membership is composed of the Chairs of the District Councils.

Standing Members:

  • President & CEO (or another officer of IIROC designated by the President & CEO); and
