Nova Scotia Securities Commission

The Nova Scotia Securities Commission was established to provide investors with protection from activities that undermine investor confidence in the fairness and efficiency of Nova Scotia capital markets and where not inconsistent with investor protection, to foster capital formation.

To fulfil our mandate, we work in close co-operation with the securities regulatory authorities across Canada through the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA). The CSA is the umbrella organization for the 13 securities regulators of Canada’s provinces and territories that work together to coordinate and harmonize the regulation of Canada’s capital markets.
