About the Fonds d'indemnisation des services financiers
The Fonds d’indemnisation des services financiers (financial services compensation fund) was established in 1999 under the Act respecting the distribution of financial products and services. The fund compensates victims of fraud, fraudulent tactics or embezzlement for which a firm, independent representative, independent partnership, mutual fund dealer or scholarship plan dealer is responsible when offering a financial product or service. On June 13, 2018, coverage under the fund was extended to compensate victims of fraud in relation to financial products and services offered by representatives, firms, independent representatives, independent partnerships, mutual fund dealers or scholarship plan dealers. The compensation is payable regardless of the sector or sector class in which the representative or firm is authorized to act. Therefore, even if representatives do not act within the authorized limits of their right to practice, compensation may be possible. For more information, please visit www.lautorite.qc.ca.
