Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC)
The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is a self-regulatory organization (SRO) that regulates investment dealers and acts as the regulation services provider monitoring trading activities on marketplaces (including exchanges and alternative trading systems) in Canada. IIROC carries out its regulatory responsibilities through setting and enforcing market integrity rules and dealer member rules regarding the proficiency, business and financial conduct of its member firms and their registered representatives. The CSA has also selected IIROC to act as the information processor on trading in Canadian corporate debt and government securities.
IIROC came to be on June 1, 2008 by combining the regulatory operations of the Investment Dealers Association (IDA) and Market Regulation Services Incorporated (RS).
