The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) is establishing a new consumer protection advisory committee.
Lucie Tedesco, commissioner of the FCAC, has launched a call for applications for the new committee, which will support her in carrying out the agency’s mandate of financial consumer protection.
“As the financial marketplace continues to undergo rapid change, it is important that we remain proactive and agile in protecting Canadian financial consumers,” Tedesco said. “I look forward to engaging stakeholders from all sectors to build their knowledge, expertise and wisdom as we pursue our core mission.”
The committee members will be vital in informing FCAC’s work on supervision, research, and consumer education. They will also share perspectives on matters such as marketplace trends and issues, concerns involving the delivery of financial services, relevant studies and research opportunities related to financial consumer protection, and the impact of changes in financial services on Canadians.
Committee members will be accepted from a variety of backgrounds, including public, private, non-profit, and academic sector representatives. Online applications will be accepted until 11:59 PM on June 30.
