With these legislative changes Alberta becomes the first province in Canada to provide IIROC with all of the tools necessary to carry out our responsibilities as a public interest regulator. We’re determined to bring wrongdoers to justice and these tools will give us the ability to do so. Losing hard-earned savings as a result of wrongdoing or negligence can be devastating. Victims are often seniors or vulnerable investors. Today’s amendments mean a great deal to the integrity of our system and for the protection of investors. By working together with the government of Alberta and the Alberta Securities Commission as well as with grassroots organizations like Prosper Canada and its delivery partners across the province we can more efficiently and effectively protect vulnerable investors. Albertans should be confident that firms and individuals will comply with IIROC’s regulatory rules and they’d if they breach those rules there will be serious consequences. I’d like to thank the Minister of Finance, the Government of Alberta, and the Alberta Securities Commission for their leadership and for continuing to be at the forefront of investor protection in Canada.
