TORONTO, June 6, 2012 /CNW/ - The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is launching its redesigned website to provide an improved one-stop gateway to valuable information for investors and regulated firms.
The site was redesigned to be more user-friendly, accessible and easier to navigate for all stakeholders. It now features a clear investor and industry focus, and employs plain language to make content and materials easier to understand.
"Our website is our primary vehicle for communicating with our stakeholders," said Susan Wolburgh Jenah, IIROC's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Having a user-friendly and information rich website with content that is timely and relevant supports our commitment to be accessible, transparent and accountable."
With enhanced search capabilities, site visitors can more quickly, intuitively and efficiently find the resources and information they need while being guided to related resources and updated information through links.
The redesign follows extensive consultations with a range of stakeholders including industry members, investors and staff. They provided valuable feedback, through a combination of meetings, round table sessions and focus groups, to help us enhance the web user experience.
Visit www.iiroc.ca now to explore the redesigned site and find details on our homepage about providing feedback. We welcome feedback on our newly redesigned site.
