Debt/Bond Market Transparency

Since 2013, IIROC has been working to enhance the integrity of Canada’s debt market through more timely surveillance, enhanced oversight and increased regulatory transparency. Effective November 2015, IIROC’s debt transaction reporting rules required IIROC dealers and firms classified as government securities distributors to report all debt trade information.
As the corporate and government debt information processor selected by the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), IIROC publishes free online trade information giving all market participants enhanced transparency and access to information that will improve their investment decisions and contribute to their confidence in Canada's capital markets.
