You need to be ready. Canadian financial institutions face an increasingly complex regulatory web as regulators in Canada and globally are imposing greater pressures to assess, monitor and mitigate regulatory and operational risks.

In addition to staying compliant, today’s financial institutions need to keep up with new regulations, deal with new issues – including those created by remote work and emerging technologies – and manage the human resources and technological requirements to get the job done. The speed of change is rapid and the demands are increasing.

Now in its 11th year! This intensive OsgoodePD certificate program was developed by a select group of industry experts to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of compliance requirements in financial services, along with practical strategies to meet them. You will explore the intersection of compliance and enterprise risk management and get best practices for effectively managing both risk and compliance as part of your organization’s essential line of defence. You will gain the most up-to-date knowledge, strategies and tactics you need to develop, implement or re-energize a state-of-the-art compliance program within your organization.

Registration includes 120-day unlimited, online access to the recorded program.
