CIPF is Managing its Operations Responsibly in Reaction to COVID-19

Date: Mar 24, 2020

The Government of Ontario has ordered the mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces effective March 24, 2020 at 11:59 pm. Workplaces engaged in the capital markets have been designated as essential workplaces not subject to mandatory closure. The Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) will, accordingly, maintain such on-site operations as are necessary to fulfil our obligations to safeguard the interests of Canadian investors. To protect the well-being of our staff, most CIPF employees are working from home and only staff who must be onsite to perform key functions are doing so in compliance with public health best practices.

CIPF remains focused on meeting our key responsibilities. We are collaborating with the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), and other stakeholders. We are actively monitoring domestic and international developments and financial policy measures. COVID-19 presents unique challenges, and the situation is dynamic. However, our contingency planning and 50 years of experience in managing insolvencies primes us to respond effectively. We are well-prepared to adapt if needed and will provide updates as warranted.
