The Ontario Securities Commission has named three new members to its independent Investor Advisory Panel (IAP).

The IAP is adding two representatives from the legal aid clinics for investors, established at Osgoode Hall Law School and at the University of Toronto in the past couple of years.

Joining the IAP are Brigitte Catellier, adjunct professor and co-director of Osgoode’s investor protection clinic, and Ivy Lam, director of U of T’s clinic. Catellier is also currently vice president of corporate governance at Meridian Credit Union.

The third new IAP member is Supriya Kapoor, founder and principal of regulatory consultancy, Aurelius GRP.

The new members of the panel have been appointed for two-year terms, effective April 1.

The IAP, chaired by Neil Gross (former executive director of the Canadian Foundation for Advancement of Investor Rights, or FAIR Canada), provides feedback on policy issues from the retail investor perspective to the OSC and other organizations.

“The IAP is an important voice for investors in the regulatory process, and new members were selected to ensure that the IAP continues to represent a broad range of relevant experience, skills, knowledge and perspectives,” the OSC said in a release.
