Victoria Harnish joins IIROC BoardBy The IJ Staff | January 31 2020 03:02PM
The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) announced Jan. 30 that Victoria Harnish has joined the regulator’s Board of Directors for a two-year term.
Harnish is a former public sector executive, having served in a number of high-profile positions during her career with the Province of Nova Scotia, including Public Service Commissioner, Secretary to Executive Council, Deputy Minister of Treasury and Policy Board and Deputy Minister of Finance.
“Her unique insight into government decision-making and public policy will be a significant asset to IIROC. Another asset will be Ms. Harnish’s Eastern Canadian perspective, which is an important component for a self-regulatory organization that operates in every jurisdiction in Canada and therefore strives for Board representation across various geographic regions,” said IIROC in a statement.
Harnish has a Master of Public Administration (Management) from Dalhousie University and the ICD.D accreditation from the Institute of Corporate Directors.
