MONTREAL – The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) will mark Investor Education Month this October with a variety of activities designed to help investors achieve a greater understanding of how to grow and protect their investments. The CSA and its members are also supporting World Investor Week, an initiative of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), which takes place from October 1-7, 2018.
“Securities regulators around the world are committed to building investor confidence and participating in World Investor Week helps promote investor education and protection both locally and globally,” said Tyler Fleming, Director of the Investor Office at the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) and a Canadian national co-ordinator for World Investor Week.
“The CSA is hosting investor education initiatives in October to build investor knowledge and support the global campaign to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection,” added Camille Beaudoin, Director of Financial Education at the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), also a Canadian national co-ordinator for World Investor Week.
Investor Education Month is an initiative of the CSA that aims to highlight the importance of investor education and provide Canadians with helpful information on investing.
Individual jurisdictions across Canada have activities throughout the month as part of both World Investor Week and Investor Education Month.
In addition, the CSA will continue promoting investor tools and resources available at https://www.securities-administrators.ca/.
