The mandate of the Enforcement Division is to protect the investing public through the investigation of complaints and the enforcement of the Securities Act.

At the BC Securities Commission, enforcement is a function that is integrated into all of the work we do. Each department has an important role to play, from encouraging compliance in the capital markets to educating investors on the importance of early reporting. We believe that this inclusive view of enforcement strengthens and enhances our efforts to protect the public and the integrity of our markets.

Every year, the Canadian Securities Administrators release an annual Enforcement Report, which highlights efforts taken by regulators across Canada to deter misconduct, protect investors, and ensure that capital markets function fairly and efficiently. View the most recent report for Canadian Securities Administrators’ 2017/18 EnforcementReport.
