Securities regulators oversee Canada’s capital markets and the advisers who sell and manage investments traded in those markets. The Nova Scotia Securities Commission is the regulator in this province. Our goal is to protect investors from investment fraud and scams, as well as other unfair or improper practices. We work to make sure Nova Scotians are confident investing in a market that is both fair and efficient.

If you have a concern or complaint about either an investment or an investment adviser, call the securities commission to find out what can be done about it. The enforcement staff of the Nova Scotia Securities Commission investigates alleged violations of Nova Scotia Securities Laws. You may call with questions, but a formal complaint must be made in writing.
