Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

The article entitled Fails-to-Deliver before and after the Implementation of Rule 203 and Rule 204, is co-authored with Dr. Archana Jain of the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. It explores U.S. Securities Exchange Commission’s (SEC) equity-selling regulations that were put in place during the 2008 financial crisis that threatened the collapse of large financial institutions.

Dr. Jain’s research primarily focuses on financial markets and regulations. Previously, his paper on Rule 201, another financial market regulation brought by the U.S. SEC, won the best paper award by The Financial Review.  

Dr Jain recently presented a paper on short selling duration and return predictability at the October 2015 U.S. Financial Management Association annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.
