The Canadian Investor is one of the clearest and most informative accounts of Canada's financial system and the issues it has been facing since the 2008 financial market crash. This insightful book examines all aspects of the many different institutions, programs, actors, and laws that affect investors' rights. A detailed and accessible analysis of the Canadian landscape that explores securities commissions and other regulatory institutions through a contemporary lens, The Canadian Investor is currently unique in Canada.

Understanding investors, their rights, and their relationship with the legal institutions that are set up to protect them constitutes the foundation of this book. The Canadian Investor attempts to answer the following questions: Who is an investor? What accountability measures are in place to protect investors? How do the rights and programs in Canada look in comparison to other similarly situated countries? In addition to detailing the current state of investor rights and the social and economic importance of investor welfare, this book highlights gaps in protections and proposes some positive avenues for development by drawing on international and historical evidence. The Canadian Investor is an unquestionable must-read for investors, students, practitioners, and all those who desire a properly functioning securities market that serves the interests of Canadians.
