Associate Professor, Anita Anand favours the adoption of a single regulatory system to govern Canadian securities – and is critical of the proposed “passport” system which she says will not address the current system’s inefficiencies. According to Anand, these inefficiencies are created by duplication, lack of harmony, opportunity cost risks and uncertainty.
Anand is former Director of Research and Legal Counsel, of the Advisory Committee reviewing securities regulation in Ontario, and Researcher for the federal government’s Wise Persons' Committee (2003) examining securities regulation. She is the author of “Securities Law in the Internet Age: Is ‘Regulating by Analogy' the Right Approach?” (Queen's Law Journal, 2001). Her current research is focused on corporate governance and corporate crime.
