Core Curriculum Program (Virtual)

A Two-Week Course in Financial Regulation and Supervision

Monday, October 31, 2022 - Friday, November 11, 2022

This is one of seven required programs to obtain our inaugural designation, Certified Financial Supervisor (CFS) designation. If you wish to apply to the CFS please click here.


The Toronto Centre Core Curriculum Program is designed to help prepare future leaders of financial sector supervisory agencies. As financial systems become increasingly integrated, as innovation and competition spread within and between different industry sectors, and as new players enter the market and disrupt traditional business models, successful supervisory agency managers need to have a broad-based understanding of the objectives, principles and best practices for regulating and supervising the banking, insurance, securities and pensions industries. The Core Curriculum Program offers a comprehensive foundation in this essential knowledge. 

Designed and delivered by former senior supervisors of the different financial sectors, the course builds graduates’ capacity to provide effective leadership in their agencies and to advocate for sound regulation and supervision with political and industry leaders and other stakeholders. The course utilizes Toronto Centre’s proven interactive approach to learning by extensive use of group activities and case studies.
