CBC Go Public Investigation into Big Banks

CBC's Go Public program is prying open Pandora's Box in an investigation into the selling practices of the major Canadian banks.

Their CBC TV programs have revealed how the banks really operate and the pressures placed on employees to upsell products and services to maximize bank profits. On March 29th CBC Go Public was the lead story on The National with Peter Mansbridge. It was this program that lifted the lid on Pandora’s Box and revealed how the public is being deceived. It also announced SIPA's "Web of Deception" Report which details some of the deceptive practices.

Small Investor Protection Association

 

About 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:

  • Contact your member of parliament
  • Write to your local newspaper
  • Write TV and radio personalities and radio stations
  • Call radio and TV talk shows
  • Spread news to your friends and contacts
  • Make a donation to SIPA to ensure sustainability

SIPA thanks all those individual investor advocates and small investors who have devoted time and effort to help make a difference.
