Statement from the Minister of Finance
"I would like to thank Maureen Jensen for her work as Chair and CEO of the Ontario Securities Commission. Ms. Jensen's commitment to public service and contributions to the OSC have successfully positioned Ontario to continue to grow as one of the world's leading capital markets.
Ms. Jensen's recent work with the Burden Reduction Taskforce resulted in 107 recommendations to reduce regulatory burden - further increasing confidence in Ontario's capital markets. Her focus on greater gender diversity on boards has seen the number of women on boards increase during her time as Chair.
I look forward to continuing this work through on-going collaboration with the Ontario Securities Commission and wish Ms. Jensen continued success.
As of April 15th, current Vice-Chair of the OSC, Grant Vingoe, will be assuming the role of Acting Chair as we begin the process to identify a permanent Chair."
