The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is seeking candidates for its district councils.

IIROC is calling on dealers to nominate candidates for the various regional committees that have both a regulatory role and an advisory role within the self-regulatory organization.

“The district councils provide an important opportunity to participate in the self-regulatory process of the securities industry,” IIROC said.

Dealers can nominate a candidate for election to the council in each jurisdiction where they have an office. Council members generally serve two-year terms.

“Nominees must be interested in getting involved and contributing to discussions on the investment industry‚Äôs regulatory aspects,” IIROC said.

The deadline for nominations is March 16.

Nominees must be approved by the relevant district council before being submitted for consideration at the annual general meeting of the members of the district.
