Canadian Investment Performance Committee
Canadian Advocacy Council
The Canadian Advocacy Council for Canadian CFA Institute Societies (“CAC”) is the Pan Canadian body representing the interests of Canadian CFA Institute societies with regards to advocating CFA Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice to Canada’s securities regulators, standard setters, self-regulatory organizations, industry groups and legislators. The CAC is comprised of approximately 16 members from across Canada who engage in a variety of activities in Canada’s capital markets.
The CAC advocates the interests of its members through the publication of comment letters on proposed rules and notices from standard setters, legislators and securities regulators. In addition, the CAC publishes “White Papers” on issues which it deems are of national importance and participates in a number of User Advisory groups. Comments and issues engaged by the CAC are screened through a vigorous litmus test and debate from its members.
