Appointment of New President and Chief Executive Officer

The Board of Directors of the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (“MFDA”) has
appointed Mark Gordon as President and Chief Executive Officer of the MFDA effective
October 1, 2012. Mark will be replacing Larry Waite who will be retiring on September 30,
2012.

Mark joined the MFDA in 1998 and currently holds the title of Executive Vice-President. Before
joining the MFDA, Mark spent several years with the Ontario Securities Commission as Senior
Legal Counsel and, prior to that, he practiced corporate securities law with a major national law
firm. Mark was one of the MFDA’s two initial employees and he has played a key leadership
role in developing and building the MFDA into a national SRO with offices in Toronto, Calgary
and Vancouver and 170 staff. Mark will lead the MFDA through the next stage of its evolution
as an SRO, as reflected in its Strategic Plan (2012 – 2014) – New Vision and a Roadmap for
Change.
