FMB Comments on the 2023-2024 Ontario Securities Commission Statement of Priorities

The First Nations Financial Management Board (“the FMB”) is pleased to provide the Ontario Securities Commission with comments on their 2023-2024 Statement of Priorities.

The main point the FMB wishes to convey in this letter is that while we welcome the intention to “incorporate Indigenous peoples’ issues and perspectives in CSA policy work”, it is clear from recent federal and B.C. legislation that the CSA has a higher duty than merely to “consider the perspectives of Indigenous peoples.”

We further include some comments that we have previously relayed to the OSC on the need to focus on Indigenous DEI and sustainability reporting, and build OSC’s internal Indigenous capacity.
