Welcome to the investor section of our website
Providing protection to investors is a key part of the OSC’s mandate. The OSC works to protect investors by making and enforcing rules governing the securities industry in Ontario. Each year our Statement of Priorities sets out specific investor-related initiatives proposed for that year. At the end of the year a Report on the Statement of Priorities provides details of the OSC’s performance against the priorities.
You can also help protect yourself by being an informed investor. In this section, you will find out how to check registration and how to learn more about investing. You will also find tools and resources you can use to do a background check on an individual or firm, or research an investment and information on our new process of calling clients regarding their dealer or portfolio manager.
If you have a question, want to report suspicious activity, or have a complaint about a company, investment product or financial adviser, contact us for assistance.
The information in this section is provided for information purposes only. The OSC does not provide financial or legal advice.
