Finally, we expanded our team, welcoming three new talented individuals as Head of Policy, Policy Counsel, and Manager of Public Relations to help strengthen our advocacy efforts and impact.
Demystifying the Regulatory System
During the year, FAIR Canada championed the investor perspective at numerous conferences and engagements with key decision-makers, industry representatives, and consumer advisory groups. A key message was the need to simplify the existing regulatory system, which is too complex and fragmented for most investors to understand or navigate with any confidence.
FAIR Canada also sought to raise awareness of critical investor rights issues through press releases, social media posts and numerous media interviews. In addition to our executive director Jean-Paul Bureaud’s public engagements, he wrote an article on embedded fees for the Canadian MoneySaver magazine. The article aims to demystify certain types of fees that investors pay but may not notice.
