More about Regulatory Disclosures

This section of the report includes information about different kinds of proceedings by securities regulatory authorities, self-regulatory organizations and/or non-securities regulators. Individuals seeking approval with an IIROC-regulated firm are required to provide this information by responding to a series of questions. On September 28, 2009, regulatory reforms resulted in changes to these questions. Because individuals may have responded to different questions, depending on when they filed information for approval, this report will include any responses filed prior to as well as after, September 28, 2009.

The report also provides the questions which approved persons would have answered.

Information about Advisor Report

The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) regulates all Canadian investment dealers and their approved employees and agents.

Individuals wanting to work at IIROC-regulated firms in specific roles (for example as a Registered Representative or an Investment Representative) must apply to IIROC for approval. Before approving these individuals, IIROC checks their qualifications and background to ensure that they meet IIROC’s requirements . Certain categories of employment (such as administrative assistants, IT specialists) do not need to be approved by IIROC. A full list of roles that require IIROC approval is provided in this Report and in the “Frequently Asked Questions” on the IIROC
Website.

Please note that in this Report and in the “Know Your Advisor” section of the IIROC web site , we have used the general term ‘advisor’ to refer to a number of official regulatory approval categories such as Registered Representative and Investment Representative. ‘Advisor’ is not, however, an official IIROC approval category for individuals working at IIROC-regulated firms and is not being used to represent an official registration category .

The information provided in this IIROC AdvisorReport comes from the National Registration Database (the Canadian securities industry’s registration database) and IIROC’s public disciplinary records.

The IIROC AdvisorReport displays industry courses that an advisor has passed in connection with an IIROC approval. The report may display additional courses that are not required by IIROC, depending on the disclosures made by the advisor through NRD. For several reasons, the report may not include a complete listing of all additional non required professional or industry courses that an advisor has taken in support of other licenses held, to expand knowledge or to stay current. You should speak to your advisor if you have questions about an advisor’s educational background or courses completed.

With regard to any indications of Regulatory Disclosures which have been made by approved persons through their National Registration Database (NRD) filings, the IIROC AdvisorReport will identify the fact that the individual has made a regulatory disclosure. For several reasons, including the need to protect the interests of third parties who may have been mentioned in the full NRD filing, the Report cannot provide any further detail on the actual disclosures. Investors are encouraged to follow up directly with the advisor to obtain additional information.

This report only provides information about individuals who are currently approved with an IIROC-regulated firm. If you are looking for disciplinary information about an individual who is no longer working for an IIROC-regulated firm please visit: https://www.iiroc.ca/rules-and-enforcement/enforcement
