We are the Ontario Securities Commission

The Ontario Securities Commission works to:

  • protect investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices 
  • foster fair, efficient and competitive capital markets, and confidence in capital markets 
  • foster capital formation 
  • contribute to the stability of Ontario’s financial system and the reduction of systemic risk. 

We do this by making and enforcing rules to govern the securities industry in Ontario. 

As a regulator, the OSC administers and enforces compliance with the provisions of Ontario’s Securities Act and Commodities Futures Act.
