In April 2015, the Minister of Finance appointed an independent Expert Committee to consider financial advisory and financial planning policy alternatives. The Expert Committee was mandated to provide advice and recommendations to the Ontario government regarding whether and to what extent financial planning and the giving of financial advice should be regulated in Ontario and the appropriate scope of such regulation.
The Expert Committee has fulfilled this mandate and now present their Final Report.
Following consultation sessions held across Ontario in May and June 2016, the Expert Committee received public input on their preliminary policy recommendations released on April 5, 2016.
Written submissions commenting on the preliminary policy recommendations are now available.
