Canadian Securities Litigation Trends: Today’s Regulatory Environment and Risk Mitigation Strategies for Directors & Officers




June 21, 2023

Time of event


Capital market participants in Canada face a minefield of emerging securities regulatory and litigation risks, from the rising wave of climate disclosure-related litigation and shareholder activism to the enhanced scrutiny of cybersecurity controls. In this evolving and constantly changing environment, it is more important than ever for Directors and Officers to stay abreast of these developments and ensure they protect themselves and their organizations from these risks.

Join us in person for a panel discussion hosted by McCarthy Tétrault’s Securities Litigation Group and HUB International’s Executive Risk Practice (ProEx) to better understand these developments and the possible risks that organizations, Directors and Officers face.

Following this interesting discussion, attendees will:

  • Obtain an overview of key trends and developments in Canadian securities regulatory enforcement.
  • Learn about the rapidly evolving landscape for sustainability-related disclosures and the evolving litigation risk environment.
  • Hear about recent trends and developments regarding cybersecurity related securities class actions and regulatory enforcement.
  • Engage in discussions on the duties of directors and officers, risk mitigation strategies, and insurance considerations.
