Montréal - The Autorité des marchés financiers (the "AMF") recently announced that twelve projects would receive a total of $804,400 in financial support through the Education and Good Governance Fund (EGGF) over a three-year period.

The list of new projects chosen from among those submitted by the deadline of September 30, 2014 is available on the AMF website. "The AMF is proud to provide financial support for these projects, which will give consumers more assistance and contribute to academic research in areas associated with our mission. These projects are part of the significant efforts made by the AMF and its financial education partners," noted the AMF President and CEO, Louis Morisset.

To encourage innovative projects that have a measurable impact on consumers and sustain the development, vitality and expansion of Québec's financial sector, the EGGF accepts projects submitted by September 30 and March 30 of each year for consideration.

Since its inception in 2004, the EGGF has supported 182 projects focussed on investor protection and education, the promotion of good governance and the advancement of knowledge. It is funded by sums collected by the AMF from fines or administrative sanctions or penalties.

To submit a project, consult the EGGF Guideline.
