In December 2011, the Supreme Court of Canada released its decision in Reference re Securities Act. The unanimous court rejected the federal government's proposed national Securities Act as unconstitutional. This decision will undoubtedly affect both constitutional law and securities regulation in Canada.

Join us for an informative and engaging discussion on where we go from here.

Speakers will include:

  • Peter Hogg, Canada's leading constitutional scholar and counsel to the Attorney General of Canada
    in this reference, will discuss the decision and its impact on federalism in Canada.
  • Professor Poonam Puri, one of Canada's most respected scholars and commentators on issues of
    corporate law and securities law, will discuss the implications for securities regulation.
  • Mary Condon, a Vice-Chair of the Ontario Securities Commission, will discuss the OSC's Strategic Plan
    in light of the decision
