What is the role of the OSC’s Contact Centre?
The Ontario Securities Commission’s Contact Centre educates and helps to protect individual investors. Investors can use the Contact Centre to learn more about companies or products they are interested in or have been approached about. You can also check the registration status of a company or someone offering investment advice.
The reality is that there is a lot of fraud out there and many people and companies are not registered to sell investments in Ontario. Investors can get in touch if they feel they’ve been a victim of fraud. If something does not feel right either with an investment option or with someone who’s trying to give you investment advice, the Contact Centre can help.
Inquiries and complaints can be submitted any way you want to send them; either by fax, email or by phone. If you’re unsure or have any questions, the Contact Centre is here to help. Inquiries can also be answered in over 200 languages.
