Doug Sarro

After graduating from U of T, I went to law school at Osgoode Hall, and completed my articles at the Court of Appeal for Ontario, clerking for the Chief Justice of Ontario and several other justices on that court. I went on to work at a large law firm in New York City for about three years practicing corporate law, where I had the chance to participate in major transactions like the AT&T-Time Warner and Kraft-Heinz mergers. I came back to Canada last summer to take on a new role at the Ontario Securities Commission, where I keep the Commission informed about major trends affecting retail investors and securities regulators, from our aging population to retail investor interest in non-traditional types of financial products like Bitcoin and other cryptoassets.

Moving back to Toronto, and entering public service, has given me a chance to think about ways I can get more involved in my community, and it'd be great to do this through U of T.
