Ontario Securities Commission

Who We Are

The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is the statutory body responsible for regulating Ontario’s capital markets in accordance with the mandate established in the provincial Securities Act and the Commodity Futures Act. The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices, to foster fair, efficient and competitive capital markets and confidence in the capital markets, to foster capital formation, and to contribute to the stability of the financial system and the reduction of systemic risk. This mandate is performed through policy, operational, adjudication and enforcement work. The OSC also contributes to national and global securities regulation development.   We offer a diverse, fair, and flexible work environment and take pride in our challenging and rewarding work.  

What We Do

The Enforcement Branch supports the OSC in delivering fair, vigorous and timely enforcement. The Enforcement Branch investigates and litigates breaches of securities laws in Ontario. Team members work closely with other securities regulators, self-regulatory organizations and law-enforcement agencies to enhance initiatives to fight misconduct. A strong enforcement presence assists in protecting investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices, and fostering fair and efficient markets.  

The Opportunity

The Enforcement Branch is looking for a Senior Forensic Accountant to join the Office of the Whistleblower (OWB) to assist in administering the OSC Whistleblower Program (Program). The Program is the first whistleblower program by a Canadian securities regulator that pays awards of up to $5 million for tips that lead to impactful enforcement action. OWB is a unit within the OSC’s Enforcement Branch that is made up of a specialized team of accountants, lawyers and professional support staff. The Office is focused on supporting whistleblowers in coming forward and reporting misconduct; working with Enforcement Branch teams to advance investigations and Enforcement proceedings, and developing and promoting the Whistleblower Program as a critical tool that gives voice to whistleblowers to protect investors and hold those who would harm them, accountable. You will also support other team members in advancing the additional team mandates of promoting inter-regulatory cooperation and other initiatives to disrupt misconduct.
