About Peter Klohn
Peter Klohn was appointed as the independent Chair of New Brunswick’s Financial and
Consumer Services Commission (FCNB), which includes the former New Brunswick Securities
Commission, on January 1, 2014. FCNB is responsible for the administration and enforcement
of the provincial legislation that regulates securities, insurance, pensions, credit unions, caisses
populaires, trust and loan companies, co-operatives, and a wide range of consumer legislation.
Before joining FCNB, Peter was a senior partner with Atlantic Canada’s largest law firm.
In his practice, he gained diverse experience in establishing public companies, exempt financings
and acting as an adviser to a variety of issuers.
Peter wrote the report which resulted in the establishment of the New Brunswick Securities
Commission in 2004. Peter also represented New Brunswick as a member of the Advisory
Committee to the Canadian Securities Transition Office. In 2013 he was profiled in the Lexpert
Directory as a leading practitioner in Canada in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions.
Recently, the PCMA had the chance to sit down with Peter to discuss his priorities, some
initiatives being worked on in the securities regulatory framework and New Brunswick’s unique
approach to capital market development.
