This is my final newsletter as Chair for Canadian Advocacy Council. This has been a tremendous opportunity to serve while continuing to learn. This past fiscal year, we have responded to 20 comment letters with a few more initiatives wrapping up. We continued to see requests for comment from regulators on the themes of governance, fees, transparency, as well as dispute resolution and restitution. While we applauded the regulators for these initiatives, we continued to note missed opportunities within the respective consultations. The archive of comment letters can be found here.
Thank you to the Canadian Advocacy Council for the support this past year and a warm welcome to the incoming Chair, Doug Sarro, CFA and our new volunteer members , Derek Butcher, CFA and Shruti Dutta, CFA. Enjoy the summer with those close to you. “Cause a little bit of summer makes a lot of history” – John Mayer
