The Financial and Consumer Services Division 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 Financial and Consumer Services Division 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.
