The CSF and SOQUIJ partner to inform and better protect the public

Montréal, December 14, 2022 - The Chambre de la sécurité financière (CSF) published summaries of disciplinary decisions issued by its Disciplinary Committee over the past two years, as well as a series of explanatory tables designed in collaboration with the Société québécoise d’information juridique (SOQUIJ). Together, these resources are intended to illustrate in a simple and accessible manner the ethical misconduct committed by advisors overseen by the CSF in order to raise awareness among the public and help advisors better understand their obligations.

“By making the Disciplinary Committee’s decisions as accessible as possible to the public, we contribute to better public protection. Raising consumer awareness, informing our members, and providing them with the tools they need to exercise their profession in accordance with best practices are all essential elements of our important mission to protect the public,” summarizes Marie Elaine Farley, President and Chief Executive Officer of the CSF.

“SOQUIJ’s mission is to promote the processing and development of legal information by supporting professionals and advancing public understanding of the law. Issues of law are omnipresent in our society; collaborating with organizations such as the CSF lets us extend the reach of our expertise and share it with the community,” added Danielle Blondin, President and CEO of SOQUIJ.

The new summaries and tables can be consulted in the Ethical conduct and Discipline section of the CSF website. It should be noted that these items are provided for information purposes only: each case is unique and many factors, including aggravating and mitigating factors, will influence the decision of the Discipline Committee.
