The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is seeking industry candidates to serve on an advisory committee dedicated to proficiency issues.

In a notice published Thursday, IIROC calls for applications from those interested in joining its proficiency committee, which provides the self-regulatory organization with input on issues involving licensing standards and continuing education.

The committee gives advice on proficiency policy and operations, helps develop educational standards and reviews course materials and proposals.

“Proficiency is a strategic priority for IIROC,” says IIROC in the notice. “High proficiency standards play a key role in investor protection and the integrity and efficiency of capital markets.”

The members of the proficiency committee will appointed by Andrew Kreigler, IIROC’s president and CEO, based on the advice of IIROC staff. Members serve two-year terms, which may be renewed.

Applications are due by Feb. 1, 2019.
