During these uncertain times, BCSC InvestRight wants to help you stay informed. We created a webpage that will help keep you updated with the information you need to know about investing and the investment markets during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our new COVID-19 webpage highlights important information for investors, as well as those looking to invest, during the COVID-19 pandemic, including:
- BCSC Investor Alerts about COVID-19
- BCSC InvestRight fraud awareness resources
- Investing-related articles about COVID-19
It’s important to note that the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) has been declared an essential service during the pandemic, and remains committed to protecting investors and the integrity of the investment markets. The BCSC continues to offer investor education, fraud awareness information, and information about regulatory developments during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The BCSC is also working with the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) to inform investors about COVID-19-related issues through national online campaigns and investor alerts.
If you have any concerns about a person or company offering an investment opportunity, please contact BCSC Inquiries at 604-899-6854 or 1-800-373-6393 or through e-mail at [email protected]. You can also file a complaint or submit a tip anonymously using BCSC’s online complaint form.
Our new quiz can help you understand whether you're currently an investor, a saver, or both.
Younger adults and those who experience the fear of missing out (FOMO) are more likely to think social media is a good place to find investment opportunities, according to new research from the BCSC.
