Small Investor Protection Association
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.
