Testimonials from our staff
The best way to get to know us is by hearing from our staff. Meet some of our seasoned professionals and students and see why they chose the OSC to build their career.
There’s always something new coming down the pipeline, which challenges me to work in different ways and flex my skills.
Working here allows me to build robust experience on high-profile cases. I am responsible for challenging components of the file, such as designing investigation strategies, leading examinations and testifying as a fact witness.
Investor protection is central to the OSC’s mandate, which makes working here both satisfying and thought provoking.
