Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) Registration Search
From the OSC website:
In general, anyone selling securities, offering investment advice or managing a mutual fund in Ontario must register with the OSC, unless they have an exemption.
Individuals and firms are registered by category - each category has different requirements and permits different activities. Regulators may impose restrictions on a registration. These are known as “terms and conditions”.
Use Registrant Search below to find out:
- if a firm or individual is registered with the OSC
- what category or categories they are registered in
- if there are any terms and conditions on their registration
Be wary of investing with anyone who is not registered with the OSC or is not registered to provide the product or service they are offering. If you have questions about a registration or an exemption, contact us for assistance.
