November 5, 2020 (Ontario) – On June 6, 2019, the Registration Subcommittee of the Ontario District Council (the “Subcommittee”) imposed terms and conditions on the registration and approval of David Weekes, Matthew Weekes, and Ralph Weekes (hereafter referred to as the Weekeses) with the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC). These terms and conditions required the Weekeses to be under Enhanced Strict Supervision. The Weekeses sought a review by an IIROC Hearing Panel (the “Panel”) of the June 6, 2019 decision of the Subcommittee.

On October 29, 2020, the Panel varied the terms and conditions imposed by the Subcommittee’s decision, requiring the Weekeses to be under Enhanced Close Supervision.
