Activity Reports

The CSA Enforcement Committee, made up of key enforcement officials in each of the jurisdictions, meets monthly to discuss general enforcement issues, processes and specific cases where reciprocal or joint action is appropriate. In some cases, CSA members pool investigative resources from various jurisdictions to obtain information regarding individuals or companies that may be illegally operating in more than one province or territory. Seminars are also organized in order to share knowledge and techniques.

Members of the CSA may also reciprocate decisions, broadening the effect of a decision to more than one jurisdiction. Reciprocal orders are an effective way of prohibiting a person banned in one jurisdiction from engaging in inappropriate conduct in another.

In certain circumstances, CSA regulatory enforcement activity may also result in proceedings in criminal court.

Since 2008, the Enforcement Committee has published an annual report of CSA member enforcement activities, providing the public with a better understanding of the context within which enforcement personnel of CSA members are required to act. Before 2008, the report was published quarterly and was primarily statistical in nature.
