The British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) today released a report detailing its enforcement activities for 2014. The report provides a high-level overview of the BCSC’s efforts to deter misconduct, protect investors, and ensure that B.C.’s capital markets function fairly and efficiently. This is the first Enforcement Report published by the BCSC.

The report outlines the legal powers available to the BCSC’s Enforcement division under the Securities Act to investigate and prosecute securities-related misconduct. It also describes the BCSC’s unique enforcement process, designed to move cases swiftly from the investigation stage to litigation.

The report includes summaries of 22 administrative cases and three criminal cases that resulted in findings from a BCSC hearing panel or a criminal court in 2014.
