Program Objectives

Toronto Centre conducts its programs with four objectives in mind:

We meet these objectives by giving our program participants the tools they need to contribute to more effective supervisory frameworks, enhanced policies, and, in turn, stronger economies. Each program has specific learning objectives aimed at strengthening participants’ financial sector knowledge and leadership capabilities.

Each of our programs helps participants to:

  • Strengthen their agencies’ capacities to perform according to international standards of supervision (core principles)
  • Deal effectively with troubled financial institutions and market failures
  • Work with governments and others to create and maintain an effective legislative and regulatory framework for financial sector supervision
  • Support efforts to enhance accessibility to financial services
  • Work with management, self-regulatory organizations, boards of directors, media, and others to promote and gain support for sound industry practices
  • Network with peers and more senior supervisors to identify and resolve supervisory issues faced in their on-going work
