The Nova Scotia Securities Commission was established to provide investors with protection in accordance with Nova Scotia's securities laws from practices and activities that tend to undermine investor confidence in the fairness and efficiency of capital markets. We also have a mandate to foster the process of capital formation where it would not be inconsistent with an adequate level of investor protection.
Our mandate calls for close co-operation with the securities regulatory authorities in the rest of Canada. This is done through the Canadian Securities Administrators, the forum for the 13 securities regulators of Canada's provinces and territories to coordinate and harmonize regulation of the Canadian capital markets. The information on our web site reflects the co-operative nature of the securities regulatory system in Canada.
We welcome your comments and any information you can provide that may assist us in achieving our goals. In turn, we hope that the information published on this web site will assist you as an investor, a capital markets participant or as a person interested in our work.
