Investor Protection Funds

Investor protection funds may compensate investors for losses in which an investment dealer or mutual fund dealer becomes insolvent.

The British Columbia Securities Commission has approved two investor protection funds. The Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) is a compensation fund for customers of investment dealers that are members of IIROC. The MFDA Investor Protection Corporation (MFDA IPC) is a compensation fund for customers of mutual fund dealers that are members of the MFDA.
