About Us

Independent Review Inc. (“IRI”) was founded in 2004 specifically to provide assistance to Mutual Fund managers that needed to implement an Independent Review Committee (“IRC”) pursuant to National Instrument 81-107 Independent Review Committee for Investment Funds ("NI 81-107") and to provide an independent secretariat and other services to IRC members.  

Since then, IRI has branched out to offer a suite of services that can not only assist IRCs but also Boards and their related committees as well as ensuring that a reporting entity's compliance adheres to provincial and federal securities regulation.
