Patricia Bowles, Director of Communication and Education
The Commission has expanded its communications program in recent years to better meet the needs of the public, the industry, and other market participants.
The program is designed:
- To inform the public about British Columbia's capital markets and its system for securities regulation;
- To arm investors with the knowledge and information they need to protect their own interests effectively;
- To better inform securities issuers and the industry of changes in the laws or policies that govern their conduct.
