Securities Law & Instruments
This section contains Ontario's securities legislation, instruments, rules, policies, and documents relating to orders, rulings and decisions. The OSC administers the Securities Act (Ontario) and Commodity Futures Act, and has the authority to make legally binding rules. We may also adopt non-binding policies, which include our interpretation of Ontario securities law.

Proposed rules and policies are published for public comment during their development. All proposed rules must be delivered to the Minister of Finance for review. Ministerial review is not required for policies.
