At present, in order to provide better services, the province is building a new service website, the content of which is not yet perfect:
The Prince Edward Island Office of Securities Supervisors administers the province's securities laws. It aims to establish a fair and efficient capital market and protect the interests of investors. The office works to improve and harmonize the regulation of Canadian capital markets.
Our securities legislation is designed to ensure that PEI's capital markets operate fairly and efficiently for participants and that investors have access to timely and accurate information on which to base their investment decisions. Securities dealers supervising PEI are required to register and self-regulate in accordance with applicable laws and professional standards.
The PEI Office of Securities Supervisors has the authority to hear enforcement proceedings and has the right to request exemptions from securities law requirements.
We are a member of the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), an association of 13 securities regulators in Canada.
