British Columbia Securities Commission
The British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) strives to make the investment markets benefit the public – enabling people to achieve their financial goals, enterprises to grow, and British Columbia to thrive.
Through smart rules, diligent oversight, strong enforcement and reliable guidance, we act as guardians of the province’s investment marketplace, striving to make BC a place where people can invest with confidence and companies can flourish.
Governance, Professional Services
The British Columbia Securities Commission’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 educate investors to protect themselves and industry participants to understand how to comply with securities law requirements.
