PPF Board Chair David A. Brown named to the Order of Canada


On April 7th, 2010 her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, Governor General of Canada, presided over an Order of Canada investiture ceremony at Rideau Hall. We are pleased to recognize the Forum's Board Chair David Brown among those made a Member of the Order of Canada.

David Brown has made enduring contributions to the development of sound regulatory policies to safeguard Canada's capital markets. A corporate lawyer, he served as president and chief executive officer of the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC). He oversaw the transition of the OSC from a government agency to a Crown corporation, and promoted high standards of transparency and accountability for the securities industry. Following his retirement from the OSC, he was appointed to conduct an important investigation into the RCMP pension and insurance plans. An active volunteer, he has provided leadership to a number of organizations, including the University Health Network, in Toronto, and the Governance Leadership Council of the Ontario Hospital Association. David is the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Policy Forum.

We are pleased to congratulate David, and to thank him for his continued service in support of the Forum.
