MaRS Insight: Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC)

November 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm









Learn how the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) regulates investment dealers and trading activities.

If your company handles Canadians’ financial lives or your software is used by financial institutions, such as investment dealers, then you know that a key part of understanding your market is knowing what regulations apply.

This November 24, as part of MaRS Meet Your Regulator Month, you’re invited to a special session with the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), overseer of all investment dealers and trading activity on debt and equity marketplaces in Canada. If your company offers trading tools to consumers or software to dealers, join this event to understand how IIROC works and what your responsibilities are.

This session will cover:

  • What IIROC does and how to know if its regulations apply to your startup
  • The general rules of how to stay in compliance
  • How IIROC is modernizing regulations in Canada


Canadian startups that offer investment services to end clients, or software and infrastructure support to investment dealers.


MaRS wants to make it easy for tech ventures to learn about the regulatory landscape in Ontario and Canada. During Meet Your Regulator Month you’ll gain perspective on which regulations are relevant for you and your customers, and get insights on how to stay on the right side of the law.
