Under section 28 of the Securities Act (Ontario), the OSC may suspend the registration of an individual or a firm if we have serious concerns about their continued fitness for registration, or if we determine that it is no longer in the public interest that they be registered.
The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices and to foster fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in capital markets. Investors are urged to check the registration of any person or company offering an investment opportunity and to review the OSC’s investor materials available at www.osc.ca.
