Our ecosystem approach to modernizing regulation brings together insights from our diverse stakeholders to help us foster more dynamic, innovative, and competitive capital markets.
Have ideas on how to improve Ontario’s capital markets? You’re in the right place.
OSC IdeaHub is a new public participation platform for capital market participants to share ideas that contribute to the OSC’s efforts to foster innovation and economic growth. Together, with your unique insights and our commitment to continuous improvement, we’re modernizing Ontario’s regulatory environment to meet the evolving needs of those who live, work, and invest in Ontario.
We’re in beta mode for now so we can reach better mode faster. Thank you for helping us get there.
You’ll have the opportunity to provide a wider range of feedback soon through a combination of permanent and in-focus categories. For now, we’re piloting OSC IdeaHub with a limited number of categories and questions.
We’re inviting your input on topics arising from OSC TestLab 2022, the first cohort of the OSC’s new program for capital markets testing. Join the conversation to share your thoughts on the potential for machine-readable securities regulation in Ontario and tell us how we can get you involved in regulatory testing.
