The BCSC publishes separate lists that detail reporting issuers, defaulting issuers, and cease traded issuers. Issuers should contact the Commission if they appear on any of the lists in error so we can promptly correct the data.
We encourage you to consult:
- MI 11-102 for the meaning of “principal regulator.”
- the reporting issuer’s disclosure record on SEDAR
- the list of reporting issuers and/or reporting issuers in default published by the reporting issuer's principal regulator. See the Related Links page for links to the websites of other securities commissions.
Searching Issuer Information
You can perform specific searches for issuers using Advanced Search. The search function allows you to focus your search results to just issuer information by checking only that box under the Limit your search to: heading. Issuers who have ceased to report with BCSC and previous company names are also included in Advanced Search results.
Issuers that are reporting issuers must make periodic filings with the British Columbia Securities Commission (the "Commission") under the Securities Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 418, the Securities Regulation, B.C. Reg. 196/97 and the Securities Rules, B.C. Reg. 194/97.

You can find cease trade orders via the National Cease Trade Order database .

You can subscribe to receive notification of new additions to the defaulting issuers list. We also offer an RSS feed with this information.
If an issuer does not appear on the BCSC's defaulting issuers list, this does not necessarily mean that it has filed all documents it would normally be required to file under the Securities Act; the issuer may be in default with another regulator. For more information about an issuer's default status in other jurisdictions please see Reporting Issuers in Default information on the SEDAR website.
