Unpaid Fines Report

In 2014, IIROC began publishing the Unpaid Fines Report which lists advisors and individuals employed at IIROC-regulated firms who have failed to pay fines, disgorgement, and/or costs imposed as a result of enforcement proceedings before an IIROC Hearing Panel. Penalties are imposed upon disciplined individuals either:

  • following a contested hearing; or
  • by approval of a settlement agreement.

The report is intended to serve as an information tool to improve transparency. The report is not meant to be a list of individuals currently indebted to IIROC. Accordingly, the report may include the names of individuals who received a bankruptcy discharge subsequent to the order being made.

About the report

The Unpaid Fines Report:

  • Lists individuals who were disciplined by IIROC ("disciplined individuals") as early as June 1, 2008, when IIROC was created.
  • Includes disciplined individuals who have not paid the amounts imposed on them.
  • Does not include matters where a disciplined individual has appealed or sought a review of a decision made by an IIROC Hearing Panel.
