Securities

The Prince Edward Island Office of the Superintendent of Securities Office is responsible for administering the province's securities laws. It is entrusted to foster a fair and efficient capital market in PEI and to protect investors. The office works to improve, coordinate and harmonize the regulation of Canada's capital markets.

Our securities legislation is designed to ensure that:

  • PEI's capital market operates fairly and efficiently for participants
  • investors have timely, accurate information on which to base investment decisions
  • those who sell securities in PEI are registered and that they conduct themselves according to applicable laws and professional standards.

The PEI Office of the Superintendent of Securities is empowered to hear enforcement proceedings and consider applications for exemptions from the requirements of the securities legislation.

We are a member of the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), an association that consists of the 13 securities regulators across Canada. To learn more go to Canadian Securities Administrators.

The Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System is an initiative by the governments of British Columbia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and Canada to better protect investors, enhance Canada's financial services sector, support efficient capital markets and strengthen the management of systemic risk.  Prince Edward Island joined this initiative on September 30, 2014.
