Applications for Membership on Policy Advisory Committee

The MFDA is currently seeking applications for new members for its Policy Advisory
Committee (“PAC”). The deadline for applications is July 9, 2010.

Mandate of the PAC

The principal functions of the PAC are as follows:
1. To provide advice to MFDA staff on a variety of matters including regulatory and policy
initiatives and industry trends and practices.
2. At the request of MFDA staff, provide advice and comment on the legal, regulatory and
market implications of any aspect of MFDA Rules, By-laws, Policies and operations.

Appointment Criteria

The MFDA President and Chief Executive Officer selects the members of the PAC based on the
recommendation of MFDA staff.

Members of the PAC are officers and senior employees of MFDA Members selected with a view
to ensuring that the PAC is reasonably representative of the diversity of MFDA membership.

Individuals appointed to PAC should have an excellent knowledge of securities law and mutual
fund regulation. Expertise in an area of special interest to the MFDA at the time an appointment
is made may also be a factor in selection. Members of the PAC are expected to have excellent
technical abilities and a strong interest in the development of securities regulatory policy.

It is expected that the PAC will meet at least quarterly. Committee members will be expected to
attend (in person or by conference call) all meetings of the PAC and to volunteer time to assist
MFDA staff in accordance with the mandate of the PAC. PAC members should be in a position

their places.
