Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) protects Canadian investors from unfair, improper, or fraudulent practices and fosters fair and efficient capital markets. It is comprised of securities regulators from across the country and designs policies and regulations that ensure consistency and the smooth operation of Canada’s securities industry. By collaborating on rules, regulations and enforcement, CSA helps avoid duplication of work and streamlines the regulatory process for companies seeking to raise investment capital and others working in the investment industry. CSA’s impact on most Canadians comes through its efforts to help educate Canadians about the securities industry, the stock markets and how to protect investors from investment scams.
