Canadian Investment Regulatory Organization (formerly New Self-Regulatory Organization of Canada) and CIPF

Canada’s provincial and territorial securities regulators recognized the New Self-Regulatory Organization of Canada (New SRO) and approved the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF), effective January 1, 2023.

New SRO subsequently changed its name to the Canadian Investment Regulatory Organization (CIRO) on June 1, 2023. CIRO consolidates the functions of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) and the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA). CIPF is the amalgamated entity, independent of CIRO, combining the former Canadian Investor Protection Fund and the MFDA Investor Protection Corporation.
