Printer-friendly version

The British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) has recently released a paper, New Concepts for Securities Regulation that contains a number of proposals for Canada’s provincial and territorial securities regulators that should give investors reason to stand up and cheer. Most importantly, the paper proposes securities regulators begin shedding their paternalistic attitudes that prevent them from recognizing that other jurisdictions, including the US, offer adequate regulatory regimes.
