Business People Meeting Discussion in a boardroom concept

The Canadian Foundation for the Advancement of Investor Rights (FAIR Canada) has added three new directors to its board, the investor advocacy group announced Thursday.

Wanda Morris, Pat Foran and Line Deslandes have joined the FAIR Canada board.

Deslandes has worked in investment industry compliance, Morris is an accountant and social activist and Foran is a TV journalist and consumer advocate.

“FAIR Canada is pleased to have these experienced individuals with their diverse and extensive backgrounds join the board of directors. They bring their extensive knowledge of investors rights and consumer advocacy to FAIR Canada,” said Guy Lemoine, co-chair of the FAIR Canada board, in a statement.

“With the addition of these new members of the board of directors who provide their perspectives and experiences from Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, FAIR Canada has enhanced its strength as an advocate for the rights of individual investors and the integrity and fairness of the Canadian capital markets,” added Ellen Roseman, FAIR co-chair.

Last month, FAIR Canada announced that it returned $2.4 million in funding to the Jarislowsky Foundation, after it failed to meet the matching condition that accompanied that financing.

The organization says it is continuing to work on bolstering its board.
