On June 29, 2017, the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) published its 2017-2018 Statement of Priorities, which sets out the 15 priority areas where the OSC intends to focus its resources and actions over the coming fiscal year, as well as the expected outcomes.

The OSC received 21 comment letters on its draft 2017-2018 Statement of Priorities. The feedback was broadly supportive of reducing regulatory burden, working with fintech businesses to foster innovation in capital markets, and implementing targeted approaches to address seniors’ issues.

The final 2017-2018 Statement of Priorities includes an additional priority related to the work required to transfer regulatory oversight of syndicated mortgages to the OSC.
