Executives and their advisors in the financial sector (banking, insurance, and securities dealers and advisors) report that regulatory matters account for an extraordinary, and increasing, proportion of their time.

Despite this, many financial executives find the regulatory system to be somewhat of a black hole. A more informed understanding of the financial regulatory framework and its underlying principles enables executives to deal with the challenges of regulatory compliance more efficiently and more effectively.

This workshop provides an understanding of the regulatory framework in place in Canada for the financial industry. Participants will examine how well the Canadian system is meeting its objectives, what important trade-offs occur, and explore governance issues, such as how risk is managed for these types of institutions.

The workshop is designed for executives and directors of financial firms, lawyers advising these types of companies, accountants, regulators, and other professional advisors, and policy makers.

** This session qualifies for lawyers’ continuing professional education requirements.


$750 – Early bird price
$850 – Full price
