Following an annual risk-based assessment of IIROC’s functional areas and key processes, CSA staff selected key regulatory processes in the following functional areas for review: business conduct compliance, trading conduct compliance, policy, and membership and registration.

The review was conducted jointly by CSA staff of seven of the provincial securities regulators that recognize IIROC: the Autorité des marchés financiers; the British Columbia Securities Commission; the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan; the Financial and Consumer Services Commission of New Brunswick; the Manitoba Securities Commission; the Nova Scotia Securities Commission; and the Ontario Securities Commission. IIROC is also recognized by the Alberta Securities Commission, the Office of the Superintendent of Securities, Service Newfoundland and Labrador, the Prince Edward Island Office of the Superintendent of Securities, the Northwest Territories Office of the Superintendent of Securities, the Nunavut Securities Office, and the Office of the Yukon Superintendent of Securities.
