Administrative tribunal hearing decisions and CSA member decisions are public records. As the government agencies responsible for protecting investors and the integrity of the securities markets, CSA members consider it important to make this type of information readily available. This is why we give the names of individuals and/or companies who have been subject to sanctions, no matter how serious and whether or not the sanctions have expired.

Also, please note that as of July 1, 2015, certain orders made in other provinces or territories will automatically take effect in Alberta. For more information, contact the Alberta Securities Commission or review its website at www.albertasecurities.com.
