Conference to cover gap in access to justice for harmed investors seeking recovery
Osgoode Hall Law School’s Investor Protection Clinic (IPC) will host a hybrid conference on September 8 to discuss the gap in access to justice for harmed investors seeking recovery.
“Access to Justice and Fair Outcomes For Harmed Investors” marks the IPC’s fifth anniversary and will feature a keynote panel comprised of Self-Regulatory Organization CEO Andrew Kriegler, Canadian Securities Administrator chairman Stan Magidson, and Ontario Securities Commission CEO Grant Vingoe, and four other panels:
- Panel 1: Has access to justice for harmed retail investors improved over the last five years?
The panel will discuss how harmed investors are procuring compensation, what initiatives have improved their access to justice, and where challenges remain. FAIR Canada executive director Jean-Paul Bureaud will chair it.
- Panel 2: The evolving retail investment landscape
The panel will discuss whether the current investor protection framework is responsive to the rapidly evolving retail investment landscape. The Globe and Mail business columnist Rita Trichur will head the discussion.
- Panel 3: Fraud, Scams and Misconduct
The panel will discuss the “hype” in investments related to cryptocurrencies and crypto fraud protection for investors. Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP associate Asad Akhtar will lead the panel.
- Panel 4: Recovery for retail investors through Law School Investor Protection Clinics
The panel will examine the impact of the Osgoode IPC on investor recovery to date and how the IPC model can expand in Canada. Osgoode IPC associate director Brigitte Catellier will act as the panel head.
