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, and that investors have timely, accurate information on which to base investment decisions. It also ensures that 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 about CSA go to http://www.securities-administrators.ca/.
