The BCSC or the British Columbia Securities Commission has flagged the following brokers. We are constantly updating this list to include more financial services that the BCSC has warned the public about. If you see a listing of a broker or financial services that you are currently using or are thinking about opening an account with, cross them off your list and look for a regulated broker.
These reviews are essential tools to research financial services before trusting your money with them. We recommend that you consult this list regularly or at least before signing up for a financial service. Keep in mind that even though a broker isn’t on the list, that doesn’t mean that it’s not problematic–do further research. However, if you do run across a familiar name among these reviews, it’s safe to say that they should be avoided.
