Earlier this month, the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) released a request for Expressions of Interest for potential future vendors who wish to provide educational services in connection with IIROC’s proficiency regime. IIROC has already released draft competency standards with respect to all of its registration categories (see our article on the latest round of proposals here) which, once finalized, are expected to launch in 2026. The request for Expressions of Interest includes references to opportunities for course development, exams, administration and program delivery in English and French. The deadline for submissions has been set at December 16th, with the short listing of vendors that will move to an RFP stage occurring March 31, 2023. Vendors are currently expected to be selected in the spring of 2024.
