Welcome to SIPA
The current investment industry regulatory system does not provide adequate protection for the small investor.
SIPA is a voice for those small investors -- Canadians who have investments from a few thousand dollars to several million dollars, but who do not influence the market or individual share prices and who do not have a financial manager on staff.
A non-profit organization supported by members and private donations, SIPA prepares and submits reports to government and regulators, tracks industry fraud, and does its best to keep the small investor informed. Learn more about SIPA's priorities.
SIPA asks members and the public to help make a difference by taking action:
SIPA thanks all those individual investor advocates and small investors who have devoted time and effort to help make a difference.
We believe the industry and regulators are failing to protect Canadian investors. Moreover they are deceiving Canadians by convincing them to place their trust and their savings with commission driven sales persons who have no responsibility to look after their best interests.
Financial Advisors do not have a legislated fiduciary duty!
Please review our petition and, if you agree, add your signature to the list. Your support will help greatly in our submissions to Government.
You can also help by forwarding the petition to your friends and contacts.
The next Sentinel will include a typical letter for sending to your MLA and MP. We ask that you also help by contacting your MLA and MP. Government representatives must be made aware of the financial damage to Canadians. They are our representatives and are concerned about our welfare.
