FAIR Canada Mission Statement

The mission of FAIR Canada is to be a catalyst for enhancing the rights of Canadian shareholders and individual investors including being a national voice for investors in securities regulation.

Who We Are

The Canadian Foundation for Advancement of Investor Rights [Fondation pour l’avancement des droits des investisseurs] (FAIR Canada) is an independent national charitable organization. As a voice for Canadian investors, FAIR Canada provides information and education to the public, governments and regulators about investors’ rights and protections in Canada’s capital markets.

FAIR Canada seeks to advance the interests of investors and the integrity and fairness of Canadian capital markets by, among other things:

  1. making submissions to securities regulators, stock exchanges, governments and other bodies on priorities, policy, legislative change and enforcement to advance the interests of investors;
  2. proactively identifying emerging issues that affect investors and seeking reform to mitigate harm to investors; and
  3. identifying actual conduct by issuers, registered persons and other market participants that is, or may be, detrimental to investors and, where appropriate, encouraging action to enhance investor rights and protections.

See FAIR Canada’s Current Strategic Priorities for more detailed information about our work and current priorities.

FAIR Canada is independent of government, regulators and the financial industry.  See Financials and Accountability Report for information about our funding and other financial details.
