Description of Services

The BCSC’s mission is to protect and promote the public interest by fostering a securities market that is fair and warrants public confidence, and a dynamic and competitive securities industry that provides investment opportunities and access to capital. We achieve this by: 

  • reviewing the disclosure that businesses raising capital must provide to investors;

  • reviewing applications for registration from those that trade securities, providing advice, or manage portfolios or investment funds to ensure they are qualified, ethical, and solvent;

  • taking action against those who contravene securities laws; and,

  • educating  investors to protect themselves and industry participants to understand how to comply with securities law requirements.
