Earlier this month, the Canadian Securities Administrators released an oversight review of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada. The review was intended to: (i) asses whether IIROC is in compliance with the terms and conditions of its recognition order; (ii) assess whether IIROC's regulatory processes are adequate, consistent and fair; and (iii) evaluate the progress of the integration of IIROC's predecessor, the IDA and RS.

While the review found IIROC to be in substantial compliance with the terms and conditions of its recognition order, it identified a number of areas for improvement and provided CSA's recommendations. IIROC's responses were also included.
